CHONGQING, China - A squad of runners from the eastern Chinese province of Shandong reset the Asian record in the men's 4X200 meters relay at 2021 Chinese National Athletics Championships here on Thursday.

In the preliminary round of men's 4X200m, Shandong finished first in one minute and 21.66 seconds to reach the final. The four runners are Qiao Zhen, Xie Yuqiang, Zhao Yaorong and Ren Xuesong.

The result will be the new Asian record should it be confirmed by the Asian Athletics Association. The original record was 1:21.70, also produced by Chinese sprinters in 2019.

Elsewhere, two athletes set their personal best on the tracks of men's 100m race. The winner, Chen Guanfeng, refreshed his personal best in 10.06 seconds, while the runner-up Wu Zhiqiang ran a personal best of 10.11 seconds.
