IPOH: A 16-year-old record fell on the first day of the Perak Amateur Athletics Association (PAAA)-Milo Open meet at the Perak Stadium here yesterday but there was little chance of any other record in the meet.
National athlete Shabana Khanum win the womens high jump in 1.76m, shattering the 1.65m record set by Nor Aishah Ismail way back in 1989.
However, Shabanas feat was well below the SEA Games qualifying mark of 1.83m but better than the 1.74m she did at the Hong Kong Open last Sunday.
It was an otherwise glamour-less day as electronic timing was not used for the track events, which meant the results would not count officially.
Thus, it was more of a warm up before next months Negri Open when athletes can bid to earn place in the SEA Games.
Also fresh from Hong Kong was national middle distance runner M. Vadivellan who won the gold medal in the 5,000m with a time of 15:24.9s. In Hong Kong, he had taken the silver over 1,500m, clocking 3:56.16s.
