Asian champion Jyothi Yarraji broke her own year-old national record as she won the 60m hurdles gold at the Asian indoor athletics championships in Tehran on Saturday. Jyothi clocked 8.12s to better her record (8.13s) which brought her the silver at last year’s indoor Asians in Kazakhstan.

Meanwhile, despite having just two legal throws, Asian record holder and Asian Games champion Tajinderpal Singh Toor took the men’s shot put gold comfortably while Asian Games silver medallist Harmilan Bains brought another gold, in the women’s 1500m.
