SL Women’s 4x100m relay team finishes 2nd


Sri Lanka Women’s 4x100m relay team clocked 45.35 seconds to finish second behind the team India at the Indian Interstate Athletics Championship continued in Chennai yesterday.

The relay team comprised Amasha de Silva, Shelinda Jansen, Lakshika Sugandhi and Medhani Jayamanne. Rumehika Rathnayaka pulled out of the tour at the last minute.

The same quartet toured India last year where they clocked the second best time by a Sri Lankan team (44.55 sec) which earned them a place in the elite pool.

They were also selected for the Asian Games which was to be held later this year, but postponed.
