          COLOMBO, Aug 20 (BSS): Shahjahan Ali Roni won silver in the 100 metre breaststroke in the 10th South Asian Games at Sugathadasa Stadium Swimming Pool here today.
It was a disappointing performance of the Bangladesh swimmer as the 17-year old BKSP boy lost the gold by a whisker after leading most of the competition.
Roni finished the first lap ahead of the other competitors but failed to keep up the velocity in the last half of the second and final lap and finished second behind the Indian swimmer Sandep Sejwal, who grabbed the gold with a time of 1:07.73.
Roni took 1:08.08 and had to be content with a silver, while his country mate Niaz Ali bagged bronze in 1:10.34.
In the other competitions, Nazrul Islam of Bangladesh won bronze in 50 metre freestyle, clocking 25.41 seconds, while the gold went to India's Varun Divgikar (23.97 second) and the silver to Sri Lankan Daniel Lee (25.07 seconds).
Sabura Khatun timed 11:04.65 to finish the women's 800 metre freestyle and became fifth out of six participants.
Surabhi Tipre of India struck the gold in this event, finishing in 9:39.60 while the other Indian Pooja Alva finished in 9: 41.92 for silver and the Sri Lankan Imara Fahim bagged
