Jyoti Yaraji became the 1st Indian woman to clock sub-13 seconds in the 100m hurdles.
Jyothi Yaraji has created history by becoming the first Indian woman to complete the legal sub-13 for the second time in the 100m hurdles, breaking her own record at the National Open Athletics Championships in Bengaluru on 17th October.
With a time of 12.82 seconds in the last race of her season, Jyoti rewrote her own national record.
She had won the same event in the National Games in Gandhinagar in a time of 12.79 seconds but was supported by wind that exceeded the permissible limit. Her earlier national record was 13.04 set in May.
