Photo-Finish: Clinton Bautista outlasts reigning champ to win SEAG hurdles gold

CAPAS, TARLAC — Filipino Clinton Bautista dethroned Malaysia’s Rayzam Shah Wan Sofian in a wild, photo-finish race in the 100m hurdles event of the 30th Southeast Asian Games, Monday at the NCC Athletics Center. 

Both Bautista and Wan both finished with a time of 13.97s. Photos, though, showed that the product of Far Eastern University was a centimeter ahead of the Malaysian.

Back in 2017, Bautista — who was just 25 years young back then — finished third with a time of 14.15s. Sofian had a time of 13.83.

Finishing third was Laos’ Anousone Xaysa with a time of 13.99.

Jamras Rittidet’s record of 13.69, which he set back in 2015, is still intact.
