JAKARTA: Hong Kong’s Sarah Lee Wai-sze blazed to a tournament-record 10.583 seconds as she set out to defend her women’s sprint title at the Asian Games on Thursday.
The 31-year-old former Olympic bronze medallist, who claimed keirin gold on Tuesday, set the new mark in the qualifying round before she sailed past India’s Aleena Reji in the quater-finals.
The morning session also witnessed an Asian record in the women’s 3,000m individual pursuit qualification with South Korea’s Lee Ju-mi setting the track on fire with a timing of 3:33.048.
Korea’s Lee will take on Wang Hong of China for the gold, while Ayustina Delia Priatna of Indonesia and Taiwan’s Huang Ting-ying will face off for bronze. —AFP
