Web screen capture of Shanti’s heats. Apologies for the low quality in photo.

Shanti Veronica Pereira did not disappoint as she ran a lifetime best of 23.87 seconds in her women 200 metres event qualifiers.

Slotted for heat 5, in lane 6, the RP student finished second in her heats and advanced to the semis which was held later in the afternoon.

Although the 18-year-old ran faster than her national record held timing of 23.99 seconds, the windspeed was just slightly above the legal limits under IAAF records ratification ruling.

Her race, a windspeed of 2.1m/s was recorded, just point one above the legal limit, thus it will not be admitted as a new women 200 metres national mark.
