    If I were to point to the two (2) MOST SAYANG races of Lydia – these were (1) her almost-sure gold at the 1990 Asian Games, and (2) the 200m gold at the 1986 Asian Games where she led most of the way but only to be nipped at the finish line by her rival Usha – just 0.03 second difference.

  2. Joseph says:

    Hay, Lydia could have performed a hat trick at the 100m had she made it to the 1990 Asian Games in Beijing. Her times before and after 1990 were faster that the winning time of the gold medalist from China. Sayang talaga – could have been 3 in a row.
