Fifteen-year old Anjana Thamke won India's third gold medal at the Asian Youth Games by setting the fastest time in the girls' 800 metres final here Thursday.

Anjana set a personal best time of two minutes 11.47 seconds, winning the race by almost three seconds. Jogindr Savinder Kaur of Malaysia came second with 2:14.14 while Sri Lanka's N Dilhani Fernando secured bronze with 2:15.72.

Anjana is mentored by Anglian Medal Hunt's athletics coach Vijender Singh.
