Azeem finds Japanese sprinters too hot to handle

Good experience: Mohd Azeem Fahmi’s time of 20.98 was far off his personal best of 20.83.

PETALING JAYA: Sprinter Mohd Azeem Fahmi was far off his personal best in the 200m final of the Athletics Challenge Cup in Japan but he achieved his target of dipping below 21 seconds.

The 18-year-old Azeem clocked 20.98s to finish fifth at the Denka Big Swan Stadium in Niigata City yesterday, which was better than the 21.03s he registered in winning the 200m silver medal at the Malaysia Games (Sukma) last month.
