Sri Lankan sprint champion Yupun Abeykon set a South Asian record by completing the 100m in 9.95 seconds at a tournament in Switzerland.
It is the best time recorded by a South Asian player in the event. After the match, releasing a video on social media, he said that no one in Sri Lanka helped him with this.

The wait is over!!!!!! 9.96 sec 🔥🔥🔥❤️❤️❤️ I did it. I worked hard for many years, and I got the results of that hard work. Yes… I am the new member of the Sub 10 club! The first Sub 10 in South Asia where there are billions. I am the owner of the 10th sub-10 in Asian history. I am giving this tribute to those who were with me. I think I paid back to those who believed in me. love a lot The sent box of the e-mail sent asking for help from the Sri Lankan authorities is full. I can’t even find a single e-mail saying that I will help. 😂
That’s why when talking to the media now, please remind me what kind of help you have given me. People are waiting to find out. 😉 Again, I did it. I love everyone who was with me. I did this for those of you who believed in me more than myself. ❤️❤️🙏🏽🙏🏽 Thank you, my team! We did it ❤️
