However, the next day 21-year-old
Swapna scripted history by winning India's first Heptathlon gold in the Asian Games.
Soma Biswas(born 16 May 1978 in Ranaghat) is an
athlete who lives in Kolkata, India and who specialises in the Heptathlon.
The top official also said that Swapna
was not included in the list as the standard of the Heptathlon in Asian Games is nowhere close to the world standard.
Although she started with Heptathlon, she later began to concentrate on her jump events
and went on to win long jump medal in the 1996 Delhi junior Asian championship.
In that same year, at the 29th National Junior
Athletics Championship at the Mr. Konterwa Stadium in Bangalore, he rotated the Heptathlon with a high jump of 1.71 meters,
and broke the previous record of 1.74 meter of Kavya.
