Duregesh enter hurdles final, Archana in 200m semis

Douglas, Isle of Man – 11 September 2011

 Indian athletes continue to deliver good performances in the Commonwealth Youth Games here with Youth Olympic Games silver medallist Durgesh Kumar Pal led the field in 400m hurdles clocking 53.15 secs on Saturday in the National Sports Centre here to qualify for finals. 

 In yet another surprising feat, sprinter Archana Suseentran won her 200m heat with a time of 24.59s to enter the girls’ semi-finals on Sunday.

 However, discus thrower Sandeep found the competition very high and finished fifth after throwing the disc to 55.43m.  South Africa’s Gerhard de Beer won the gold in 67.44m while his teammate Jan-Louw Kotze took the bronze with a throw of 62.90m, missing the silver medal in just 6 cm to Scottish boy Nicholas Percy.
