Sanjay CJ stole the show on the Day Three of the State sub-junior and junior athletic championship by snaring two state records to his name with an inspired show in the pool.
At the Dolphin Aquatics on Friday, Sanjay clocked record times in 400M and 100M freestyle (Group II) events. In the 400M event, the Dolphin Aquatics trainee stopped the clock at 4:13.19 seconds to better the time of 4:21.52 seconds set by Aaron D’souza a decade prior. In the second event, Sanjay bettered his own record from last year, and clocked time faster than the national mark, with an effort of 55.03 seconds.
Meanwhile, Vidith S Shankar also claimed a state record in the 50M breaststroke (Group IV) with a time of 39.98 seconds, shattering Rohan D’souza’s 20-year-old record of 40.61 seconds.
In the girls’ section, Mayuri Lingaraj stopped the clock at 30.59 seconds in the 50M butterfly event set a new state record.
