Sri Jayewardenepura University player S. A. T. Dasun set a new tournament record in the 2022 inter-university championship games in the high jump event held on November 27th, 2022 at the Sugathadasa Stadium.

Competing in the high jump event of the athletics section, Dasun set a new tournament record with a jump of 2.14 meters, breaking the previous record of 2.06 meters.

Dasun, a second-year undergrad of the Faculty of Applied Sciences of Sri Jayewardenepura University has been making a name for himself in the world of athletics for some time now. In 2018, he won the boys high jump event at the South Asian Junior Athletics Championship with a jump of 2.04 meters. This win marked his first international win and earned him a spot in the Asian Games held later that year in Japan. At the Asian Games, Dasun placed 8th, proving that he was a force to be reckoned with on the international stage.
