SEA Games silver medallist Shyam can't get sprinting out of his blood

BELIEVE THE HYPE: Former track star UK Shyam with clippings from his running days.
BELIEVE THE HYPE: Former track star UK Shyam with clippings from his running days.

The shoulders are still muscular, the 1.80-metre tall frame is lean and the face is every bit as boyish as it was 14 years ago.

U K Shyam looks fit at 39.

That’s not surprising, even though he retired from sprinting in 2005.

He can still be spotted three times a week at the Kallang Practice Track, just across the spanking new National Stadium at the Singapore Sports Hub.

Old habits die hard, Shyam insists, talking to Ali Kasim.

He is not training for any competition, just exercising.

Obviously, Shyam’s current speed in the 100m is pedestrian compared to his best ever time — 10.37sec, the national record he achieved twice in 2001, at the World University Games in Beijing and again at the Kuala Lumpur South-east Asia (SEA) Games.

The practice track will be busy in June, when Singapore hosts its first SEA Games since 1993.

It will serve as the warm-up station for athletes before they head off into battle at the National Stadium.

Shyam knows the venue inside out and he's excited at what could unfold in the men's 100m race.
