The 24-year-old, Amlan claimed the 100m-200m double. Taking a break after the Asian Indoor Championships in February, he returned to the outdoor event and clocked 10.50 seconds to win by two-hundredths of a second from Amiya Kumar Mallick of Odisha. He was back on track within an hour. He then won the 200 meters with a timing of 21.20 seconds.

CWG silver medalist Sreeshankar, who played his last competition in National Games in October 2022, produced 3 efforts that were too good for gold. The World No. 6 claimed medal with a leap of 7.94m in his last try at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium. He was pleased with his efforts after being sidelined for three months with a Grade 2 hamstring injury.
