National runner Shereen Vallabouy adds yet another feather to her cap by smashing a personal best time of 53.47 seconds to break her own 400m national indoor record en route to gold at the Bearson Gathje Classic in Minnesota.

Previously, the Malaysian athlete clocked an impressive 53.79 seconds at Pittsburg State University, Kansas- setting a new benchmark and emerging as the first Malaysian female runner to go under 54 seconds in indoor 400m, smashing the national record that has stood for 17 years.

The youngest daughter of Josephine and Samson Vallabuoy who is also a former national athlete holds the 800m Sea Games record of 1:48.29, achieved at the 1989 KL Sea Games.

The 25-year-old young lad is currently pursuing a degree in the field of recreation and tourism at Winona State University, Minnesota.

Speaking about her current status of smashing a personal record:

I felt ecstatic to surpass the record twice in 10 months. I couldn't have asked for a better start to the year. I won gold and broke the national indoor record, so it was a double joy for me," said Shereen.

Congratulations on adding yet another feather to your coveted cap!
