Umar Osman surprises everyone with a gold medal and new national record in men's 400m at SEA Games!


Umar Osman, a relatively unknown 20-year-old Malaysian athlete, stunned spectators at the Morodok Techo Stadium by breaking the national record and winning the gold medal in the men's 400m event at the SEA Games.


Umar's final 50m sprint secured his victory with a time of 46.34 seconds, surpassing the previous national record of 46.41 seconds set in 2001 by Zaiful Zainal Abidin. Philippines' Umajesty Wesley and Frederick Cabatu finished second and third, respectively.


Umar, who was determined to make an impact as an underdog, credited his coach, family, and friends for motivating him.


"I gave it my all to take home the gold. Since this is my first time competing in the Sea Games, it is incredible that I actually won and broke the national record," said Umar. "Few had faith in me, but my coach, my family, and my friends provided me the inspiration I needed."
