Ranchi: Two meet records were set on the third of day of the 53rd National Open Athletic Championship, being held in Hotwar on Monday.
The refreshing rain perhaps infused life into the meet, that has seemed lacklustre otherwise.
The records were set in 3000m women steeplechase and women’ javelin throw events.
Asian Games gold medalist in 3000m steeplechase, Sudha Singh, representing Railways Sports Promotion Board, improved on her own three-year-old mark of 10:09.56.
In women’s javelin, Annu Rani of ONGC set a new meet record with a throw of 54.35m.
