Bharathiar University's M.A. Siva Anbarasi stunned some of the best in the country to clinch the women's triple jump gold on a day when two records fell in the 77th all-India inter-university athletics meet at the Nehru Stadium here on Thursday.

After failing to impress on her first few attempts, the 22-year-old post graduate student from PSGR Krishnammal College (Coimbatore) came up with a stunning jump of 13.04m that sent the home crowd into raptures.

The former flung the disc to 55.11m and, with it, erased the old mark of 53.28m set by Harwant Kaur in 2001, while the latter set a new time of 15:59.17s which was better than her own last year's mark of 16:18.01s.
