Inderjeet Singh :Missed National Record, by a Whisker

Inderjeet Singh’s throw was only marginally short of the national record created by Om Prakash Singh. The latter’s throw of 20.69 metres was created in 2012 at an event held in the Hungarian city of Szombathely.

The second and third place winners were Tejinder Singh (18.08 metres) and Om Prakash Singh (18.02 metres) respectively.

Inderjeet Singh first came to prominence when he won the Summer Universiade in 2013, throwing a mark of 19.70 metres. The throw was the personal best for Inderjeet Singh then, which he bettered at the National Games later that year with a throw of 19.89 metres. Inderjeet continued his success for the nation at the Asian Games in 2014 and won the bronze medal with a putting mark of 19.63 metres.

A Punjab native, Inderjeet Singh is currently under the coaching of Pritam Singh, brother to well-known Indian shot putter Shakti Singh.
