Rio Olympics-bound Tintu Luka ran her season’s best of 2:00.61 to win a silver in 800m at the Josef Odlozil Memorial Athletics Meet in Prague, Czech Republic.
The reigning Asian champion was second behind 2013 World Youth Championship gold winner Anita Hinriksdottir of Iceland who ran 2:0054 at the Czech capital on Monday night.
27-year-old Luka is still a long way to go as she is placed at 30th spot among the season’s top list with former world champion and London Olympics silver medallist Caster Semenya of South African leading with 1:56.64, followed by world indoor champion Francine Niyonsaba of Burundi with 1:56.92 and Renelle Lamote of France with 1:58.01.
