Muhammed Anas Yahiya ran the men’s 400m race in a Czech Republic event in 45.24 seconds to bag gold and break own national record for the second time. He had earlier broken his 45.32-second record by running 400m in 45.31 seconds at 2018 CWG. Yahiya is only the second Indian after Milkha Singh to compete in men’s 400m CWG final.
Anas set a time of 45.24 seconds to break his own record of 45.31 seconds which he had set during the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast earlier this year. The Athletics Federation of India posted a congratulatory tweet for Anas after he set a new Indian record in Czech Republic. “Congrats Mohd. ANAS for breaking his own 400m #Indian record in #Czech Rep. New Record-45.24s, Previous Best-45.31s Congrats coach Galina Bukharina for success of #HimaDas and #Anas!,” AFI tweeted on Saturday.
