When You Ink Your Own History

Main » 2011 » December » 31
2011 was an exceptional year for track and field in Lebanon. In the first half of the year, we saw our young athletes achieving great performances and breaking records. In the second half, we saw seniors and some young athletes excelling and collecting titles and medals in the major championships. The season is always short for the young athletes and we say that "when they breathe they improve". This is why, every year we expect these athletes to do something great, we expect to see new faces, new talents who will be following the steps of their ancestors and become champions one day.

The Achievement Of the YEAR!
I want to start by the Achievement of the year, which is the Silver Medal won by Gretta Taslakian at the Asian Championship on 200m! Her very long and fruitful career made her the best women athlete in track and field in Lebanon. She raised the Lebanese Flag very high so it can fly at the top of the world! Gretta added new titles and medals to her collection by winning 2 gold medals in 100 and 200 meters at Al-Ain for the Pan Arab Championship, and one month later she won a silver and a gold medal on the same distances in the 12th Pan Arab games that happen every four years, one year before the Olympic Games, of course Gretta will represent Lebanon in London next year with 1084 points on the scoring table, collected with the superb 200m run in Al-Ain which is the second best 200m run of her career wi ...

On the 28th December 2011, CSJ organized a meeting for the end of the season supervised by the LAF. Anthony Mikael, a midget boy who was so close to the 150m record of Charbel Najm 17.68s, for many times, finally break it 3 days ago by 0.02s. Anthony just added a first individual record to his 2 relays records: 4x60m and the medley relay. He still has 5 months to improve his record and get it close to the 17s barrier.
After 2 days, CSJ organized another meeting, this time Daniel Bassous ended his youth category with a 400m Hurdles record in hand! He broke the record in his first 400mh run! A record previously held by Ramzi Naim who had at that time 51.16s on 400m, while Daniel Bassous has 52.22s on the same distance, the previous record was 59.78 and the new one is 0.63s better with 59.15s. We all know that in 400m or in 400m Hurdles, your next run should be better than the first one, and the third one better than the second.. I bet that this record can't stand more than 2 weeks! In 7/01/2012, Bassous will run again, and we're expecting him to break it again and again! He has two full years to get close to Ahmad Hazer's record of 55.44s. We should note that Daniel Bassous holds 2 relay records: the 4x400m for youth and the Medley relay.
Moreover, on the 30th, a new relay record was set, but unfortunately the electric timer didn't work due to darkness. The CSJ team with Anthony Mikael,  Daniel Bassous, Michel Maalouly an ... Read more »
