Two Trebles and SEA Games qualifiers at 2019 IVP Track and Field

Ever since Ang Chen Xiang stepped onto the IVP scene in 2014, save the pulled hamstring in his first year, it has been title after title, record after record. The national record holder won his first gold in 2015 and has held a stranglehold on the title and meet record (14.39s) since. Ang has met the SEA Games nomination standard of 14.43s, and he

And rightly so; her Singapore citizenship was approved barely a week before the YOG qualifier in Subic Bay last June.
