Berita Harian : Fu Kang lebur rekod 15 tahun renang kebangsaan


KUALA LUMPUR: Perenang muda kebangsaan, Wong Fu Kang memecah rekod kebangsaan berusia 15 tahun dalam acara 100 meter kuak dada lelaki pada Kejohanan Renang Terbuka Malaysia ke-58 di Pusat Akuatik Nasional, Bukit Jalil, di sini, hari ini.

AKSI perenang muda kebangsaan, Wong Fu Kang.

Perenang Johor berusia 17 itu memadam rekod 1:02.59s ciptaan Elvin Chia dari Sabah pada edisi 2000 selepas mencatat kepantasan 1:02.56s.

Selain rekod kebangsaan, Fu Kang juga memperbaharui rekod kejohanan milik Sandeep Sejwal dari India iaitu 1:02.74s pada edisi 2013.

Kejayaan itu sekali gus melayakkan beliau beraksi di temasya Sukan SEA Singapura pada Jun ini.

"Saya tidak jangka boleh memperbaharui rekod kebangsaan. Ia sukar dipercayai...ini adalah catatan peribadi terbaik saya yang sebelum ini melakukan catatan 1:04.01s.

"Saya benar-benar berlatih dengan keras kerana mahu layak sekali lagi ke Sukan SEA. Catatan masa ini dijangka membolehkan saya naik ke podium di Sukan SEA nanti," kata Fu Kang.

Dia kini mengikuti pengajian di Sekolah Antarabangsa Britain di Phuket, Thailand di bawah biasiswa.

Sukan SEA 2015 di Singapura akan berlangsung dari 5 hingga 16 Jun ini.

Pada temasya Sukan SEA di Myanmar pada 2013, beliau mewakili negara dalam acara 200m dan 400m rampaian individu tetapi tidak berjaya meraih sebarang pingat.

Catatan masa yang dilakukannya hari ini turut melayakkan beliau beraksi di Kejohanan Renang Dunia di Kazan, Russia, Julai ini, di bawah had kelayakan B iaitu 1:02.56s. - BERNAMA

The Star : Record breaker Fu Kang going places

BY JOASH EE DE SILVA

KUALA LUMPUR: Wong Fu Kang stole the limelight on the opening day of the Malaysian Open swimming championships by smashing Elvin Chia’s 15-year-old national record in the men’s 100m breaststroke.



The 17-year-old Johor swimmer clocked 1:02.56 at the Bukit Jalil Aquatic Centre to beat Elvin’s mark of 1:02.59 set in 2000.

Hong Kong’s Kwok Ka Fai picked up the silver with a time of 1:03.87 while Selangor’s Daniel Lim clocked 1:03.92 to take the bronze.

“It’s an unbelievable feat ...  it still hasn’t sunk in yet,” said Fu Kang.

“I have been training very hard for the past four months but I didn’t expect to break the national record,” he added.

Fu Kang’s efforts earned him a ticket to the Singapore SEA Games in June and the World Championships in Kazan, Russia, in July.

He attributed his success to the training programme at the British International School in Phuket, Thailand, where he has been studying for the past six months.

“The training there is more organised and I have benefited from it,” said Fu Kang.

Fu Kang is now all fired up to increase his gold tally. He will compete in the 50m breaststroke and 200m individual medley.
