Men's 4x400 relay team set new national record at college games
Taipei, May 10 (CNA) The men's 4x400m relay team from National Taiwan University of Sports created a new national record Wednesday, clocking 3 minutes, 07.29 seconds at the National Intercollegiate Athletic Games in Taipei.
The team, comprising Yu Chia-hsuan, Wang Wei-hsu, Yu Chen-yih and Chen Chieh, broke the record of 3:07.61 set by Taiwan's national team at the 1998 Asian Games in Bangkok, Thailand.
A United States team, composed of Andrew Valmon, Quincy Watts, Butch Reynolds and Michael Johnson, created the current men's 4x400m outdoor world record on Aug. 22, 1993 at a track and athletics event in Stuttgart, Germany, clocking 2:54.29, according to the International Association of Athletics Federations.
Two other new national records were set at this year's National Intercollegiate Athletic Games, the organizers of the event said.
Hank Yang from National Taiwan University of Sports won the men's 100-meter sprint with a time of 10.22 seconds, smashing the national record of 10.28 seconds set by Yi Wei-chen in 2012.
Another young sprinter, Yang Wei-ting from National Taiwan Normal University, also set new national record, finishing the 110m hurdles in 13.57 seconds, beating his own record of 13.61 created in June 2016.
