Bhubaneswar: The sedate start at the Federation Cup Athletics picked up the pace on the second day as Abha Kathua broke the National Record in women's shot put on Monday at Kalinga Stadium, Bhubaneswar.

Abha was the joint record holder of 18.06m with Manpreet Kaur before this competition but with her fifth-round throw of 18.41m, she became the sole national record holder.

In the men's 200m final, Animesh Kujur ran his personal best of 20.62 seconds and was just one-tenth of a second away from the National record of 20.52 seconds which belongs to Amlan Borgohain.

Nithya Ramraj clocked her personal best in 100m hurdles with a timing of 13.14 seconds and won the gold medal.

The most talked about event of the day turned out to be disappointing as Nayana James trumped Shaili Singh to win the women's long jump medal with a jump of 6.53m.

Shaili Singh won the silver medal with a disappointing 6.34m.
