Haryana's Amit Khatri broke the under-20 national record to take the 10,000m race walk title as the 18th u-20 Federation Cup drew to a close on Wednesday at the TT Nagar Stadium.
Khatri, 17, clocked 40 minutes 40.97 seconds, winning by nearly half a minute from his state-mate Paramdeep Mor. He improved on the national record of 40:37.78 seconds set by Akshdeep Singh in Ranchi in 2018.
Rajasthan hammer thrower Bhagwati Choudhary missed the national u-20 record and the meet mark by a mere centimeter when she sent the ball and chain soaring over 52.33m. It was the closest anyone got to Seema Jhakar's mark set in Lucknow in July 2009.
