Su Bingtian and Wei Yongli bag 100m golds at Asian Athletics Championships – Times Of India


PUNE (India): China’s Su Bingtian and Wei Yongli emerged the fastest runners at the Asian Athletics Championships in Pune with emphatic wins in Thursday’s 100m finals.

Su retained the men’s title he won two years ago, finishing in 10.17 seconds which was slower than the 10.06 he ran at home in Beijing in May.

But his effort was enough to keep him ahead of Asian record-holder and favourite Samuel Francis of Qatar, who was second in 10.27 seconds.

Barakat Al-Harthi of Oman picked up the bronze with a time of 10.30 seconds.

Su and Francis were the chief contenders for the title after Japan’s teenage sprint sensation Yoshihide Kiryu, who clocked a junior world record equalling time of 10.01 seconds in April, opted to skip the meet.
