Track and Field in Taipei

For the first time in WAB history we sent a small but very capable high school track and field team to the Tiger Classic Athletics Meet at the Taipei American School. This meet is of the very highest standard and is the premier international schools meet in Asia. WAB athletes didn't come away with any medals but a lot of personal bests were made during the meet. Here are a few highlights; Ing Xhu Lim finished a very close fourth place in the 110m hurdles in an amazing time of 16.73. This time will stand him in good stead for APAC. Kirsten Terkelsen wowed the crowd finishing fourth place in the girls high jump, with an amazing leap of 1.44m. This height will surely make her one of the favorites for APAC.

Thomas Rasmussen continued his good form from last year finishing fourth in the high jump with 1.73m. Can last years APAC champion do it again. His fifth position in the triple jump is also an indication that he is coming into form just at the right time.
