The unstoppable beast has just broken another national record, now with 62.55m throw.
Irfan Shamsuddin has just became the first Southeast Asian to throw over 60m at discuss throw. It was done with a throw of 61.10m at Halle on the 21st of May.
About only two days after that (23rd May) he renewed the mark in a throwing meeting at Turnov, Czech Republic with a distance of 61.56m.
On the 25th of May, the two-time SEA Games champion eclipsed his record again with a throw of 62.55m during the Union Leichtathletic Gala at Linz, Austria.
He was in second behind Austrian Lukas Weisshaidinger who threw 65.35m. *Results*
1. Lukas Weisshaidinger (AUT) 65.35m
2. IRFAN SHAMSUDDIN (MAS) 62.55m
3. Roland Varda (CRO) 58.65m
4. Igo Gondor (CZE) 53.76m *Irfan's throw series*
55.87 / 62,55 / 58.15 / 56.91 / X / X *Level of this performance - 62.55*
This would ranks him top 5 Asia annually in the Asian Athletics Rankings. You need to throw 67m in order to be top 10 of the world, throw 65m for top 30, or throw 64m for top 50. The 62.55m would make top 75 of the world. *Chance to win Asian Games*
In the last three Asian Games (2014- 2006), first three results are 65.11 62.58 61.25 and 67.99 63.46 63.13 and 63.79 62.11 60.82, respectively. He will further improve his distance, therefore enhance the chance of winning a medal in 2018 Asian Games as well. *Chance to win Commonwealth Games*
Need to throw 63m in order to be in top 10 of Commonwealth annual rankings, but to win a medal in Commonwealth games, 62m would be sufficient if you are lucky. *Chance to qualify for IAAF world championships, London 2017*
Must throw 65m before 23 July. *RAYZAM SHAH POSTED TWO SUB 13.90 IN GERMANY*
