ASIAN ethnic groups' RECORDS

Athletics > Ethnic Groups > Men > Asian

The first Orientals who set a world record were the Japanese Chunei Nambu on Long Jump and Mikio Oda on Triple Jump in 1931.
The first Semite who set a world record was Said Aouita (Morocco) on 1500 and 5000 metres in 1985.
No Indians + Maleo + Malagasy did ever set a world record in Athletics.

In doing this job I had to solve a problem: big chinese communities live in Malaysia and, especially, in Indonesia. For example, Java population is chinese for the most part. I don't have biographical information about any Indonesian or Malaysian record-holders, so I thought athlete's name could show their origin. For that I took out Loo Kum Zee, Malaysian High jump record holder, from my list. He display a chinese name.
Did I make any mistake? Write to me !

Important notice. Records set at Chinese Games are not included because I think they are not reliable.
