Udupi, 14 Sep 2019:

P M Thabitha from Tamil Nadu hogged the limelight on both track and field during the first day's morning session in South Zone Junior Athletics Championships which started here on Saturday morning.

Thabitha sets the only record in the morning when she clocked 14.34 secs in girls under-18 100m Hurdles.  

In that process she improved Meghana Shetty's seven year old record of 14.53 secs.

She also made it to a golden double by winning the Long Jump (5.89m) in addition to the Hurdles.

The 17 year old Thabitha is the current Asian Youth Champion in both the events.
