Seasoned thrower Annu Rani gleamed the Javelin Nationals in Jamshedpur with a national record-breaking effort of 63.82m on her very first endeavour.
Annu, Uttar Pradesh athlete has been India’s best woman thrower for almost a decade now. Sunday was the 9th time she broke the national record as she ameliorated on her previous mark of 63.24m set previous year at the Federation Cup in Patiala.
Annu’s next 3 throws capitulated 60.10m, 56.60m and 58.13m ahead of she passed on the last two efforts.
The difference between Annu and her competitors in Jamshedpur was colossal. The silver medal went to Sanjana Choudhary for 53.87m – almost 10m behind Annu’s gold-winning shot.
Annu has been rationally improving on her own national mark since first bursting it in 2014 with 58.83m.
She had worked closely with German biomechanics expert and Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra’s coach Klaus Bartonietz in the run-up to the Tokyo Games.
