Sahan dazzles with record breaking feat
SportBenedictine Sprinter Sahan Thenuka Rajapaksha took a step closer to be in contention for major honours at All Island Schools competitions when he broke Anandian Arosh Kariyawasam’s record in the boys’ Under-15 100 meters at the Western Province Schools Athletics Championship concluded at the Sugathadasa Stadium last Friday. (4th July 2014)

Rajapaksha slashed 0.1 seconds from the previous record to win the Under-15 100 meters dash in a new record time of 11.2 seconds. The former record holder, Kariyawasam, established the record in 2011 and later went on to win All Island School Competitions and also represented Sri Lanka at several junior international competitions.

Sahan who is been trained by prominent sprint coach I.D. Premasiri had many admirers including school coaches when he established the new record yesterday.

Sahan also won the 200 meters in his age category.

The performance in the 100 meters dash won him the Best Athlete title in the Under-15 age group.

The 14-year-old has shown signs of being a future prospect with his dashing sprints at junior lower age group events and will be an athlete to watch out for at forthcoming all island schools competitions.
