Back in the track and field competition, Jyothi Yarraji (Andhra Pradesh) and Amlan Borgohain (Assam) who both train at the Odisha High-Performance Centre in Bhubaneswar, claimed the titles of the Fastest Woman and Fastest Man of the National Games. Jyothi won the women’s 100m in a star-studded field, clocking 11.51 seconds.

“I didn’t come here thinking of winning or losing. I just wanted to give a good time and today I could come up with my fastest,” said Jyothi Yarraji, who felt Dutee Chand (sixth) and Hima Das (seventh) may not have been in the best of forms.

 

 

Uttar Pradesh’s Abhishek Pal and Parul Chaudhary completed a unique double at the National Games here on Saturday, winning the Men’s and Women’s 5,000m gold for their state. Abhishek Pal recorded a timing of 14:07.25s, falling short of the Games record of 13:50.05.

Abhishek Pal will get another chance to break the Games’ record when he takes part in the 10,000m on Monday. Parul Chaudhary will also chase a second gold in the 3,000m Steeplechase.
