Jyothi Yarraji smashes own 100m hurdles national record in UK
The 22-year-old from Andhra Pradesh Sunday clocked 13.11 seconds under permissible wind speed of +0.3m/s to better her own earlier national record of 13.23 that she had clocked on May 10 during the Cyprus International Meet in Limassol.
Jyothi, who trains under Joseph Hillier at Reliance Foundation Odisha Athletics High-Performance Centre in Bhubaneswar, had bettered Anuradha Biswal's national mark of 13.38 which had stood since 2002.
That happened a month after her national record effort was not counted due to wind assistance beyond the legal limit. She had clocked 13.09 seconds during the Federation Cup in Kozhikode last month but it was not counted as a national record as the wind speed was +2.1 m/s, more than the permissible +2.0 m/s.
Another Reliance Foundation Odisha Athletics HPC trainee Amlan Borgohain, who smashed the national record during the Kozhikode Federation Cup, finished fifth in the 200m race with a time of 21.27 seconds.
In other results, national record holder Siddhant Thingalaya finished second in 110m hurdles with a time of 13.97. Graceson Amaldas, national swimmer-turned-hurdler from Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu won the junior men's 110m hurdles guest race in 13.91 seconds.
