IV SAF Games


Pakistan's capital Islamabad was the venue for the fourth SAF Games. The games were held there from October, 20 to 27 1989. The number of disciplines remained 10. Playing hosts, Pakistan improved it's performance considerably taking its tally of medals near the 100 mark. It managed to win 97, including 42 gold, 33 silver and 22 bronze. India retained its supremacy in the medals count with a tally of 124, including 61 gold, 43 silver and 20 bronze. The Maldives failed to get any medal for the third time in succession. Several records went off the board especially in the athletic events. Many new records were created and some of them are still to be broken. These include the 110-metre hurdles record created by Ghulam Abbas of Pakistan, clocking 14.11 seconds, and the 3000 metres record created by Abdul Razzak, clocking a time of 8 min 42.43 seconds. The SAF games record of long jump (7.79 metres) was also created by Mohammad Urfaq of Pakistan during the Islamabad games. Vijay Amarsekhra - a woman athlete from Sri Lanka - set up a new mark in javelin throw by clearing 53.06 metres. Pakistan won the gold medal in Football and Volleyball whereas India won the gold in Kabaddi and Table Tennis both men and women.
