Two Lebanese Records Smashed in the same day but not the same place!
|On the 2nd of July 2011, the Lebanese Athletics Federation organized a Track and Field meeting at Jamhour, and at the same time, there was the Midget National Triathlon Meeting of France organized by the French Athletics Federation.
In two different places and at the same time, Ahmad Hazer was preparing for his second hurdle run for 2011 after clocking 14.49 in Romania, and Sara-Joe Kortbawi was preparing for her 3rd 1000m run this year; Sarah- Joe previously was near Saria Traboulsi's Lebanese record with 3:12.01. Sara-Joe and Ahmad were ready for this season, and they proved it when both of them smashed the Lebanese record in their category: Ahmad Hazer (Ansar) ran a 14.13 seconds on 110m Hurdles (1044pts) improving his own National record by 0.25s and securing his place in the World Championship, while Sara-Joe Kortbawi (Champville) clocked 3:08.45 improving the Lebanese Bantam record by 4 seconds and is now 1 second away from the Midget Record of 3:07.20 held by Gretta Taslakian.
