Boglárka Takács improved her Hungarian record in the 100m at the Hungarian Athletics Grand Prix
Poglarka Takacs won the women’s 100 meters with a new Hungarian record of 11.23 seconds on Thursday in the bronze category of the IAAF Continental Series in Budapest.
In Thursday’s competition held at the Lantos Mihály Sports Center, runners were helped by a gentle tailwind, including entries in the women’s sprint classic.
In addition to Takacs, as is Hungarian front-line Luka Kozak, the European Championships 100 hurdles silver medalist, as well as Anna Kocice and Justina Csouty, who ran the top of the under-20 team last week. The best Hungarian runners had to compete with three American runners and one Trinidadian.
The race was full of action, as Takash had a great battle with American Jada Baylark, Trinidadian Michelle Lee Allen, and American Shannon Ray as well. The first three “fell” at the finish line almost at the same time, and the photo of the finish – at the end of a long wait – showed the champion Hungarian sprinter as the winner, who in addition to the first place could also be happy with the new national top.
Boglárka Takács beat Enik Szabó’s record of 11.41 seconds, who was nearly twenty years old, in May last year, then with two further improvements brought the Hungarian best time to 11.31. This improved to 11.27 a week and a half, this time around even better by four centuries.
Ana Kochis set her best under-20 with 11.38 and finished fifth, while Luka Koczak finished sixth with 11.49.
