Indian competitor Dutee Chand set a new national record while winning a 60m lurch heats during a 7th Asian Indoor Athletics Championships.
Dutee clocked 7.28 secs, a best by an Indian to date, that also bettered a Asian Indoor Athletics Championships record.
She was a fastest qualifier for a final during a Aspire Dome.
Dutee’s team-mate Srabani Nanda, who had won a china in women’s 100m competition and a bullion in 200m in a only concluded South Asian Games, was unfit in a heats on comment of a fake start.
The progressing best timing by an Indian in women’s 60m race was a 7.81 secs in a name of Arjina Khatun set during the Asian Indoor Games in Hanoi, Vietnam in 2009.
Dutee also erased a progressing Asian Indoor Championships record of 7.33 secs that was in a name of Viktoriya Zyabkina of Kazakhstan set while winning bullion in a 2012 edition in Hangzhou, China.
The Asian Indoor record in women’s 60 m race, however, stands during 7.09 secs in a name of Susanthika Jayasinghe of Sri Lanka set in 1999.
