Ushan Perera earns LSC Special Awards

Ushan Thiwanka

Ushan Perera, earned a special Lone Star Conference Award, thanks to his continued form in the Men’s High Jump for the Texas A&M University-Commerce track and field team in the USA.

Perera was named the Lone Star Conference Most Outstanding Male Field Athlete of the Year after a record-setting jump in the high jump to win the gold medal at the conference meet two weeks ago.

The high-jumper has been a key performer for the university over the last two years, having performed consistently, bettering not only meet records but Sri Lankan records also in the process.

Just last month, Perera renewed his own High-jump Indoor National Record, managing to clear a height of 2.27m at the Lone Star Conference Track and Field Championship, an improvement of his 2.26m jump in 2021.
