Nauraj bags gold at Hungarian GP

KUALA LUMPUR: National champion Nauraj Singh Randhawa hit top form at the right time to win the high jump gold medal at the Hungarian Grand Prix (GP) Series Tatabanya Championship over the weekend.

Nauraj, 29, won in style by recording a season-best jump of 2.27m at the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) sanctioned championship at the Grosics Gyula Stadium, according to the National Sports Council’s post on their Facebook page yesterday.

Based on the results on the World Athletics official website, Nauraj beat Cypriot Vasilious Konstantinou, who managed a jump of 2.23m while Sylwester Bednarek from Poland came in third (2.20m).

Nauraj, who is currently training in Leipzig, Germany, holds the national record of 2.30m achieved at the 2017 Singapore Open Championship. — Bernama
