Duathlete Shahrom aims to better his world rankings

National duathlete Shahrom Abdullah is aiming to improve on his world rankings when he competes in the Malakoff Powerman Malaysia duathlon championships in Lumut on Nov 11.

The 28-year-old Kelantanese, who is ranked among the top 100, will race in the company of top contenders, including world number one Joerie Vansteelant of Belgium.

“I probably would have been ranked higher if I had participated in more ranking events,” said Shahrom, who will represent Malaysia in duathlon at the SEA Games next month.

Duathlon, a run-bike-run event, will make its Games debut in Pattaya.

“I had initially tried for the better known triathlon but swimming is not my strength. The duathlon is very much suited to my abilities in cycling and running,” said Shahrom, who was a member of the national mountain bike team for the 2001 KL SEA Games.

Shahrom’s first major event in duathlon was the 2002 Malaysian Malakoff Series and he went on to claim the overall title.

“It was an unexpected win, as I was new to the sport, but I knew I’d found the sport for me,” he said.

More than 560 international and local athletes will participate in the 11km run-64km bike-10km run event in Lumut.

Besides Shahrom, SEA Games-bound duathlete Mariana Mohamad and triathlete Kimbeley Yap will also be among the competitors.
