Pavithra Venkatesh of Periyar University set a new games record in women’s pole vault, scaling a height of 4.01m on the opening day of track and field competitions at the Khelo India University Games in Bengaluru on Saturday.

Pavithra’s mark was also a new All India Universities record, erasing her own previous mark of 4.00m, set earlier this year. There were record-breaking performances in both the men’s and women’s discus throw as well, with Abhinav (Lovely Professional) and Tanuja (Maharshi Dayanand) triumphing.
