Bangladesh Navy athletes Mohammad Ismail and Shirin Akter maintained their dominance in the Bangabandhu National Athletics, claiming the 100m crown on the opening day of the event’s 44th edition Friday at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka.

Ismail bagged his third 100m title in a row after clocking 10.55s while Shirin won her 11th 100m crown following her 11.8s finish.

Ismail informed the media that it was a satisfying finish for him after struggling to train regularly amid the Covid-19 pandemic, and targeted a better finish in the upcoming 9th Bangabandhu Bangladesh Games this April.

He also expressed desire of winning a medal in the South Asian Games and said better training opportunities abroad would enhance the chances of the Bangladeshi sprinters in the international events.

Ismail’s teammate Rakibul Hasan came second in the 100m with a timing of 10.6s, while Bangladesh Army’s Hasan Mia finished third clocking 10.7s.

In contrast, Shirin said she could’ve posted a better timing were it not for the athletics track at the BNS.

Ismail took 10.40s to become the fastest man for the second consecutive time, while Hasan Mia and Abdur Rauf were placed second and third with 10.50s and 10.60s respectively

She added, “My coach expected better timing. The Bangladesh Games is up ahead, I’d try to improve my timing there.

“Navy contributed a lot behind my success, I trained well during the corona days, I did individual training in Savar’s BKSP.”

Shirin has set her next target after several years of local dominance – to be crowned south Asia’s best in the 100m.

“I’ll do whatever is needed to achieve this goal in the next two-three years,” she concluded.

Army’s Sharifa Khatun (12.2s) and Ansar and VDP’s Kabita Roy (12.4s) finished second and third respectively behind Shirin.

Meanwhile, Rakibul brushed aside his 100m disappointment by winning the 1500m with a timing of 4:20.8s, while Army’s Sumi Akter claimed the 1500m honors in the women’s event after clocking 5:7.6s.

Bangladesh Police’s Imtiaz Hossain (14.14m) and Ansar’s Sraboni Mallick (11.51m) won the men’s and women’s shotput respectively, while Navy’s Mahfuzur Rahman (2.1m) and Army’s Ritu Akter (1.7m) were victorious in men’s and women’s high jump respectively.
