New 60m national record only leaves Azeem hungry for more

Record-breaker: Mohd Azeem Fahmi clocked 6.63s in the first round of the 60m indoor race to break Watson Nyambek’s record of 6.66s at the World Championships in 1999.

PETALING JAYA: Not even a month in the United States but sprinter Mohd Azeem Fahmi got off the starting blocks in an explosive way in his first outing with Auburn University.

In only his first-ever indoor experience, Azeem broke the national 60m record en route to winning a silver medal behind Olympian Micah Williams in the Texas Tech Open and Multis at the Texas Tech Sports Performance Center in Lubbock, Texas.
