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.

In the finals held earlier this afternoon, the 18-yrs-old finished fifth with a credible timing of 47.74 seconds.
His effort in Taipei earned him a place at the upcoming July IAAF World Junior C’ship, the 400m qualifying mark for this competition was pegged at 47.70 seconds.
Zubin’s previous PB was 48.69 seconds set at this year National Schools. He is coached by Kamarulzaman Tahir.
