Jyothi Yarraji (Hords)
Jyothi Yarraji’s turnout in the 100m hurdles was lightning fast. The 22-year-old is the national record holder with a timing of 13.04 seconds. The sprinter from Andhra Pradesh even broke her own record with 13.03 seconds. Unfortunately, the record could not be ratified.
At the Birmingham Games, Yarraji has set himself the goal of breaking the sub-13 second. Although she will be competing against a tough field, with sprinters from Jamaica and Nigeria, Jyothi believes she has the potential and speed to take a podium finish.
Ancy Sojan (long jump)
Ancy Sojan’s dramatic improvement in the long jump has been the talk of the town since the Thrissur girl crossed 6.50m in two consecutive encounters in Thiruvananthapuram.
Ancy surpassed her career best performance of 6.36m achieved at the 2020 Khelo India Games when she jumped 6.51m at the Indian Open Jumps event in Thiruvananthapuram on March 1. on her real show. Twelve days later, Ancy proved that her 6.51m jump was no fluke as she set an impressive 6.55m while winning the gold in the first
Ancy has finally started to deliver on her promise, and staying in the Indian camp in Bengaluru has worked wonders for her.
Ancy has been training under Anoop Joseph in the Indian camp for the past six months and has improved a lot.
