India’s Jyothi Yarraji is turning heads with her performance as she once again bettered her own national record in the women’s 100m hurdles at the 2022 Harry Schulting Games on Thursday. She clocked 13.04 seconds in the heats to break the national record for the third time in 16 days.
Her previous best was 13.11 seconds, which she set at the Loughborough International Athletics meeting five days ago. Before that, she broke Anuradha Biswal’s 20-year-old record (13.38) with a run of 13.23 seconds in Limassol, Cyprus.
Yarraji struggled to get her time under 13 seconds and came close to it on several occasions. But the kind of form she has shown, it won’t take her long to break through. Meanwhile, the men’s national record holder in the 110m hurdles Siddhant Thingalaya was the other Indian to medal at the Harry Schulting Games.
He bagged the bronze medal at the event with a time of 14.42 seconds, with his personal best at 13.48 seconds. Amlan Borgohain, the men’s national record holder in the 200m, was also in action in the 100m sprint. Although he was the first among all the athletes who participated in the event, through three rounds, but he did not start in the final.
