Singaporean sprint queen Shanti Pereira breaks 100m National Record twice in one day at Germany Meet

GERMANY — Singaporean sprint queen Shanti Pereira, left spectators in awe as she shattered her own 100m women’s national record not once, but twice in a single day.

Competing at the prestigious 58th International Pentecost Sport Meeting, Pereira showcased her exceptional speed and determination, establishing herself as the fastest Southeast Asian woman ever in both the 100m and 200m races.

Pereira’s remarkable journey began in the heats, where she surpassed her previous National Record time of 11.37 seconds with an astonishing 11.34 seconds (+0.9 m/s) on Sunday (28 May).


Unfazed by her initial triumph, Pereira took to the track again in the finals and astounded the crowd with an even more impressive performance, clocking an astonishing 11.26 seconds (+0.6 m/s) to secure a second-place finish.

According to Singapore Athletics, not only did Pereira elevate her own standing, but she also surpassed the existing Southeast Asian record held by the Philippines’ Kristina Knott.

Pereira’s lightning-fast time of 11.26 seconds now stands as the fastest 100m ever recorded by a Southeast Asian woman, a testament to her unwavering dedication and hard work.

These groundbreaking achievements mark the sixth time this year that Pereira has rewritten the Singaporean 100m Women’s National Record.

This latest feat adds to Pereira’s growing list of accolades, further solidifying her status as a sprinting icon.

In fact, she has been on an extraordinary record-breaking spree, setting a total of nine National Records in 2023 alone, including her remarkable performances in the 200m events.

Her extraordinary talent was on full display at the recently concluded 32nd SEA Games in Cambodia, where she clinched gold in both the 100m and 200m races.
