Former Asian Championship gold medallist Manjula Kumara Wijesekera, along with sprinters Prasanna Sampath Amarasekera and Chandrika Subashini stormed to the finals of their respective events as Sri Lanka made its presence felt on the opening day of the athletic competition at the 16th Asian Games at Aoti Main Stadium here today.
Following high jumper Wijesekera’s leap of 2.15m in the morning to make it to the final 12 of his pet event, 400m specialists Amarasekera and Subashini had two blistering performances in their respective men’s and women’s heats. More importantly, both Amarasekera and Subashini ran their season’s best timings, giving an early indication of what would be on store for Monday’s men’s and women’s 400m finals.
