HONG Kong's top track and field athletes yesterday set two records as local hopefuls turned on the pace to impress Hong Kong Amateur Athletic Association selectors. The selectors are due to choose the national team for November's Asian Amateur Athletic Association Championships to be held in Manila. The meeting, held at the Wan Chai Sports Ground, saw Watson's Athletic Club's top hammer thrower Sammy Fong Charm-hung better his own 49.06 metres national record with a throw of 49.30 metres. Top junior distance runner Maggie Chan Man-yee, also of WAC, ran a virtual solo women's 1,500 metres, clocking four minutes and 30.51 seconds, which broke her own 4:30.72 set earlier in the year. Chan also competed in the women's 5,000 metres held shortly after the 1,500 metres and appeared content to take second place behind her Watson's teammate Chiu Pik-kwan who is better known as a cross country runner. Chiu clocked 18:01.35 with Chan finishing just a stride behind in 18:02.29. Both are now in a strong position for selection to the Asian Championships squad which is expected to be announced by the end of the month after an evening track meeting on October 29. While both Fong and Chan both set new marks, it was Watson's Athletic Club's top junior distance runner Simon Parsons who really caught the eye with an impressive 4:04.80 1,500 metres win which was just over two seconds outside the 4:02.40 record for the event held by Glen Horstead for 20 years. Parsons much prefers the longer 5,000 metres and 10,000 metres events and came third in the men's 5,000 metres at last month's Singapore Open Championships. He led from the gun yesterday and blew away both of his main opponents after three laps. South China Athletic Association's leading woman high jumper Kwok Sai-ming also met the HKAAA selection criteria with a good leap of 1.65 metres and should also be in line for selection. The men's sprints saw Neville Ku Wai-ming, who runs for Citizens Athletic Association (TCAA), show welcome signs of a return to form with a 10.74 seconds 100 metres win over promising junior Kevin Liu Chun-ki. Ku, who is apparently ineligible to represent Hong Kong in Manila as he does not have the necessary seven years residence qualification, won easing up while Liu could not repeat his 10.88 seconds heats time and had to be content with 10.98 behind Ku. Watson's Singapore Open Championships men's triple jump gold medallist Ma Yuet, who is in the same position as Ku in terms of eligibility, also showed yesterday that he is in a class of his own when he cleared 14.91 metres to score a very easy win by overone metre from second placed Chan Wai-shing. Apart from Fong Charm-hung's record breaking hammer throw, Watson's Athletic Club's athletes dominated the other throwing events. Kevin Baker notched a double in winning both the men's discus and shot putt events with throws of 38.78 metres and 13.19 metres respectively while Yu Lu easily won the women's shot putt with a throw of 11.10 metres which was over two metres farther than her nearest rival Dora Hung of the Hong Kong Junior Squad.
