V. Praveen of MCC and J. Tharany of M.O.P. Vaishnav won the men's and women's 100m titles respectively on the second day of the A.L. Mudaliar inter-collegiate athletics meet here on Thursday.
Praveen held the lead from start to finish while Tharany did not find it easy. Coming into the home stretch in third place, Tharany had to step on the gas in the final fifth to take the honours.
The men's 400m sprint saw Yogesh (JHA Agarsen) drop as far back as the fifth spot midway through the race, but kicked on to finish first.
