Jyothi Yarraji clinched the silver medal, while Amlan Borgohain secured the bronze. They marked a significant achievement for India in the global sports arena. Jyothi Yarraji, representing India in the women's 100m hurdles, registered a time of 12.95s in a strong eight-women final race at the Jyvaskyla Motonet GP 2023 Tour Bronze event for her podium finish in Finland. She had earlier finished second in her heat with a time of 12.96. Reetta Hurske of Finland topped the podium ahead of the Indian athlete with a time of 12.80s. While another Finn, Nooralotta Neziri, clocked 13.17s to take the bronze.

Equally deserving of accolades is Amlan Borgohain, who clocked 10.49 in 100m race, his season-best time, to finish third. His previous-best this season was 10.52, which came at the Kurpfalz Gala 2023 athletics meet in Germany last month. The 25-year-old holds India's men's 100m national record with a time of 10.25s. Oshane Bailey (10.28) of Jamaica and Samuli Samuelsson (10.36) of Finland finished first and second, respectively, ahead of Amlan Borgohain in the 100m dash. 

Meanwhile, it was the fourth medal of the season for the 23-year-old Jyothi Yarraji. She holds the national record of 12.82 in the women's 100m hurdles. Heading into the Finland meet, Jyothi Yarraji finished fourth in Poland. She won gold medal in the women's 100m hurdles event (13.20s) at the T-Meeting 2023 athletics meet in the Netherlands. Jyothi Yarraji also won the gold medal with a season-best time of 12.84s at the Kurpfalz Gala 2023 athletics meet in Germany back in May. Moreover, Jyothi Yarraji clocked 12.89s at the Federation Cup 2023 in Ranchi last month. After that, she made the cut for the Asian Athletics Championships, scheduled in Thailand this July.
