NEW DELHI: Sprinter and Tokyo Olympics hopeful Serebni Nanda became the first Indian athlete to return to the competition after a full stop on training and competitions in March.
The 29-year-old, who is training at the MVP Track Club in Jamaica, attended a meet in the country and managed a time of 11.78 seconds. The Velocity Fest also featured some of the country’s biggest stars and Nanda’s event featured double Olympic sprint champions Ellen Thompson Herah and Shelley-Ann Fraser-Preece.
The qualifying standard for the women’s 100-meter event is 11.15 seconds, but it does not matter that Nanda managed to overtake it at that time, as World Athletics has suspended Olympic qualification tournaments until November 2020.
Thompson was the winner in the 100 meter event with a time of 11.19 seconds, while Fraser-Priese won the women’s 200 m event with a time of 22.74 seconds. 2011 World Championship gold medalist Yohan Blake won the men’s 200m event with a time of 20.62 seconds.
Nanda first entered the international scene in 2008, winning a team gold medal in the 4×100 meter relay at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Pune. She also represented India at the Rio 2016 Olympics, and finished sixth in the summer.
