Zubin Percy, Muncherji ran 47.29 seconds at Asian Junior C’ship in Taipei, Taiwan during Round 1 of his 400m qualifiers yesterday.

The superb run erased the old hand-timed mark of 47.4 seconds held by Godfrey Jalleh and Haron Mundir.

His second place finished afforded him to advance to the next round where he was seeded third for the finals to be held the next day.

In the finals held earlier this afternoon, the 18-yrs-old finished fifth with a credible timing of 47.74 seconds.
