    Dagmil Breaks Record En Route to SEA Games Gold

    Wednesday, November 30, 2005

    Mapúa’s pride Henry Dagmil solidified his reputation as one of the country’s top leaper as he landed a gold medal in the Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) men’s long jump event held at the Rizal Memorial Track and Field Stadium last November 28.

    Bothered by the injury he absorbed during the last month of his rigid training, Dagmil rarely showed any indication of slowing down. The two-time NCAA Most Valuable Player did not give the opposition a chance in the finals as he came up with a SEAG record-setting jump measuring 7.81 meters. The gold-winning jump, although two centimeters short of his personal best, surpassed the previous long jump mark set by Malaysian Mohd Zaki Sadri in the 1997 Jakarta SEA games.

    Malaysian Mohd Syahrul Amri MD Suhaimi finished a far second with his 7.69-meter leap while Thai Kittisak Sukon settled for the third place and the bronze after a 7.54 try.

    The SEAG gold finish was a first for the 23-year old Cotabato native, who is a veteran of three SEA games. Dagmil started his stint in the 2001 Malaysia edition of the games as an unheralded jumper. It can be remembered that Dagmil’s first claim to fame was his 7.83-meter leap that shattered the 68-year old Philippine record in the National Open Track and Field Championships last year.
