Guangzhou Asian Games Analysis Of Performances By Athletes

GUANGZHOU, Nov 27 (Bernama) -- Following an analysis of how athletes who took part in the Asian Games fared:


One of the worst results as Roslinda Samsu (pole vault) and Noraseela Khalid (400m hurdles) failed to maintain or better their 2006 Doha Asian Games performances.

Roslinda failed to match her silver medal feat four years ago in Guangzhou, after managing just a height of 4.00m compared with 4.35m in Doha while Noraseela who has been training overseas for almost a decade, finished fifth in her 400m hurdles race and failed to emulate her bronze achievement.

National high jump ace Lee Hup Wei was another flop as he could only manage to clear 2.15m and finish in ninth place although he has a personal best of 2.27m which was incidentally the gold medal winning height.

The women's 4x100m quartet comprising Yee Yi Leng, Nurul Sarah Abdul Kadir, Norjannah Hafiszah Jamaludin and Siti Zubaidah Adabi finished sixth with a time of 45.54s despite clocking 45.33s to set a new National record recently.


Shuttlers failed to match their one gold, three bronze medal feat in Doha by finishing with two silver medals through the men's doubles pair of Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and Datuk Lee Chong Wei from the men's singles.

Kien Keat-Boon Heong lost to Indonesia's Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan in the final while Chong Wei lost to Lin Dan of China.

The women shuttlers were a complete whitewash.

Badminton have been included in the '2012 Road to London' programme, an ambitious target of winning the country's first ever gold medal in the Olympics.
