National Games October 4 LIVE: Walker Ram Baboo sets national record, swimmer Maana Patel sets new National Games record: follow the highlights of the 2022 National Games

Rambaboo’s record is the fifth national record set at the Games and the third in athletics, after the women’s and men’s pole vault national marks of Rosy Meena Paulraj (Tamil Nadu) and Siva Subramaniam (Services) respectively.

The other two national records were in weightlifting competition. The 35km race walk was only introduced in India last year following World Athletics’ decision to scrap the 50km event after the Tokyo Olympics. “I will continue to work hard to replicate such time on an international platform as well,” Baboo said after the event.

In the weightlifting arena, Purnima Pandey from Uttar Pradesh overcame a stiff back and struck gold in the women’s +87kg category. In Rajkot, Gujarat’s top swimmer Maana Patel ousted national champion Avantika Chawan (Maharashtra) in third place on India’s all-time list behind Shikha Tandon and Kenisha Gupta.

In the badminton events, Surat, favorite left-hander Malvika Bansod (Maharashtra) defeated Unnati Hooda (Haryana) in the first round of women’s singles with a 22-20, 21-13 win.

With wins in their respective first-round matches, second seed Aakarshi Kashyap (Chhattisgarh) and home favorite Tasnim Mir staged a tantalizing quarter-final battle.

Meanwhile, Arjun Kadhe of Maharashtra will meet Manish Suresh Kumar (Tamil Nadu) in the men’s singles final while Zeel Desai of Gujarat will vie for the women’s singles crown against Sharmada Balu of Karnataka during the competition at the Riverfront Sports Complex in Ahmedabad .
