Kuala Lumpur: National sprint champion Muhammad Azeem Fahmi continued his winning streak in the US by winning the 100m sprint at the Florida state university (FSU) relays championships early this morning.

At the meet that took place at Mike Long Track in Tallahassee, Florida, Azeem, who represented Auburn University, finished in 10.32s, leaving nine other runners in his wake.

It was all the sweeter for the 18-year-old sprinter who was making his debut in the outdoor tournament after three previous appearances in the 60m indoor race.

The silver was won by Andre Ewers (10.49s) while the bronze went to Trei Thorogood (10.51s).

Last month, Azeem got off to a good start in the US after breaking his own men’s 60m indoor sprint national record at the Tiger Paw Invitational.
