Surana College lass clinches gold in 400 metres

Padmini MG of Surana College provided the lone bright spot on the penultimate day of the 48th Bangalore University Inter-Collegiate Athletics Championships at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium here on Thursday.

The 20-year-old final year B Com student set a meet record of 56.80 seconds in the women’s 400 metres, bettering the old record of 57.40 set by G Bindu Rani of SBM Jain College in 2006.

Chethan B of Government First Grade College (GFGC), KR Puram, completed a double by clinching the men’s 110M hurdles gold in 16.50. He had won the high jump gold on the opening day with a meet record of 2.03M.

“My priority is high jump. Two years back I used to do hurdles. This time around I gave it a try because my college could get a gold and with it some precious points,” said Chethan.

Al-Ameen College are leading the overall tally in the men’s section with 55 points followed by GFGC, KR Puram, with 28.
