Thin Seng Hong set for London sprint showcase

Cambodia’s sole 2012 Paralympic Games representative, Thin Seng Hong, will compete tomorrow in the first of her two sprint events in London.

In front of thousands of athletics fans at the Olympic Stadium, the 26-year-old, who runs with a carbon-fibre blade in place of her missing right leg, will race in the opening round of the women’s 100 metres T44 class, which is scheduled for a 1:33am, Cambodian time, start.

Although she is not expected to advance to Sunday’s final, Thin Seng Hong will look to break her personal best of 17.13 seconds.
