After Sunder Singh’s gold on the opening night of the World Para Athletics Championships, the Indian contingent ended Day 2 on a disappointing note, failing to secure any medals.

Day 2 of the Championships witnessed three events that featured Indian athletes – the men’s Javelin Throw F55, women’s Shot Put F55, and men’s Discus Throw F37.

In today’s men’s Javelin Throw F55 final, lone Indian representative Sunil Phogat finished in the bottom half of the table. The 37-year-old registered a throw of 23.75m and could only manage the eighth spot.




The event was won by Serbian Milos Zaric as the 29-year-old Serb recorded a throw of 30.83m to clinch the gold. The silver and the bronze were won by Brazilian Ferreira Licurgo and Egyptian Yaser Ab Elsayed respectively.

India’s next event for the day was the women’s F55 Shot Put that featured two Indians in the final ten. The pole position was secured by Latvian Diana Dadzite with a throw of 8.01m while the Indian eves finished at the bottom two. Shatabdi Avasthi finished last while Karamjyoti Dalal eclipsed her compatriot with a throw of 5.43m to secure the 9th spot.

The Men’s Discus Throw F37 Final was won by Khusnid Norbekov of Uzbekistan. The only Indian in the fray, 24-year-old Arvind, registered a throw of 44.92 m to finish 7th overall. Australian para-athlete Guy Henley narrowly missed out on the gold to finish in the runners-up spot. Iranian Majidijamalabadi secured the third spot.




However, India found some joy in the medal ceremony as Day 1 winner Sundar Singh Gurjar collected his gold medal. Sundar opened India’s account at the World Para Athletics Championships by clinching gold in the men’s javelin throw event. In the F46 category, Sundar recorded his personal best effort of 60.36m on the very first night of the tournament and took the top honour.

 The third day would feature discus thrower Jaideep deswal competing in the F42 event and Rampal Chahar in the men’s high jump T47 event.
