Abha Breaks Shot Put National Record at Federation Cup 2024

Rate this post

While everyone is waiting for the star Neeraj Chopra to arrive on Day 4 of the Federation Cup for the finals of the javelin throw, there are new stars in the making who are shining brightly in the Federation Cup.

Here are some of those shining performances

Men’s 200m

Animesh Kujur is a new star in the making in the field of 200m. The 20-year-old sprinter, representing Odisha while hailing from Chhattisgarh, is making all the right noise in the field of 200 meters. And his performance in the recently concluded 200-meter event in the Federation Cup is the justification for it. Kujur, whose PB was 20.74s, clocked his new PB of 20.62s, which is actually just one-tenth of a second off the two-year-old national record of 20.52 seconds by Amlan Borgohain.

Women’s Shot Put

Abha Khatua, the joint NR holder with a mark of 18.06m, today broke that NR mark in her fifth attempt at 18.41m on Day 2 of the Federation Cup. With the Olympic qualification mark being 18.80m, Abha said, “I think I can achieve the Olympic qualifying mark of 18.80m. There is interstate competition and two Grand Prix events where I will try to qualify for Paris.” Here’s hoping she achieves it.

Women’s Long Jump

While an interesting rivalry is brewing up in this event between Shaili Singh and Nayana James and it is producing good results, Nayana produced a gold- winning jump of 6.53m in her fifth attempt, while Shaili finished second with
her jump of 6.34m in her fourth attempt.

However, both are some distance off the Paris Olympic Qualification mark of 6.86m. They both have some more competition in the future to achieve that qualification mark.

Women’s 100m Hurdles

Nithya Ramraj, who recently had appendicitis surgery, became India’s 2nd fastest 100m hurdler after Jyothi Yarraji by clocking 13.14s, bettering her previous PB of 13.36s, in the finals to clinch gold.
