Cray not concerned with tight schedule ahead

KUALA LUMPUR — Eric Cray, the face of Philippine athletics, will need even stronger legs for Tuesday’s “killer schedule.”

The Philippine-born, Texas USA-based Cray will vie in the heats of 100-meter dash at 3:30 p.m. and 400m hurdles at 4:30 p.m. He won both events two years ago in Singapore.

If successful, the 400m hurdles and century dash finals will be at 8:20 p.m. and 9:40 p.m., respectively.

But the 28-year-old Cray doesn’t mind the tight schedule.

He said he will “just go out there and run” as the SEA Games’ centrepiece sport goes full blast at 85,000-seater Bukit Jalil National Stadium.
