Khulna's Shaon Ahmed and BKSP's Rupa Khatun celebrate after winning the U-19 100m titles at the National Junior Athletics in Dhaka Friday

Rupa Khan registered a record time of 12.67s to finish first, a continuation of her recent successes at the national age-level competitions

Khulna’s Shaon Ahmed and BKSP’s Rupa Khatun clinched the 100m titles in the men’s and women’s U-19 events on the opening day of the 34th edition of the National Junior Athletics at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka Friday.

Shaon clocked a record time of 11.42s to cross the finish line, ahead of his BKSP counterparts.

He said, “I am really happy. It was my father and mother’s dream that I would compete at the national level, achieve good results. I am happy to have done it.”

Rupa also registered a record time of 12.67s to finish first, a continuation of her recent successes at the national age-level competitions.

She recently finished first in the 2017 U-17 100m event, and the the same event at the National Youth Games earlier this year.

Rupa, a standard 10 student, said, “I am so elated. I am getting several successes in the national tournaments. But I have to work harder to improve myself. Only time will tell how much I progress further.”

Two more records were created by BKSP’s Jannatul and Narail’s Tanmay Baidya.

Jannatul clinched the U-19 high jump title after leaping 1.61m while Tanmay posted 55.92m in the U-19 javelin throw event and took home the gold medal.
