VII SAF Games


The scene shifted to Madras in 1995 where the seventh edition of the SAF Games was held from December 18 to 27. A record number of 14 disciplines were included in the games. Silambam and kho kho were the demonstration games. A sum of Rs 240 crore was allotted as budget for the conduct of this mega event. Men's hockey was included for the first time in the SAF games. India once again succeeded in taking a lion's share of the medals. A notable feature of these games was that all the previous records in the men's swimming except the one created in the 1500 metres freestyle event at Dhaka in 1993 by India's J. Abhijit, were shattered and new records were created. All the record breakers were Indians barring Karan Mijanurrehman of Bangladesh who claimed the top honours in the 100 and 200 metres breaststroke events. Several landmark performances were recorded in the athletic section also. A Sri Lankan athlete set up a new games record in the 100 metres clocking 10.49 seconds whereas Sugath Tilakratne won the gold medal in 400 metres writing a new record. India 's Shakti Singh became the new record holder in the discuss throw event (57.78 metres). In the women's section Sushantika Jaisinghe became the fastest runner of the SAF games consuming just 11.34 seconds to win the 100-metres event. She also created a meet record in 200 metres (22.95 sec.) India 's Shiny Wilson created history by beating the previous record in 400 and 800 metres, recording 52.12 seconds and 1 min. 59.85 seconds, respectively. Shabana Akhtar of Pakistan created a record in long jump (6.31 metres). India swept all the gold medals in team events, including the newly introduced event of men's hockey.
