Asian Athletics Championships: Inderjeet Singh Takes Gold


Indian athletes got off to a good start at the Asian Athletics Championships today. Inderjeet Singh brought in the yellow metal in shot put, while Mayookha Johny finished at sixth position in the Women’s Long Jump event.

Here’s a detailed report of the event being held in the Chinese city of Wuhan.


Inderjeet Singh: The Golden Throw

Inderjeet Singh Gives Reason to Cheer:

26-year-old Inderjeet Singh has been on a roll for some time now. Singh had got his hands on the gold medal in the Federation Cup a few months ago, with a personal best of 20.65 metres, reserving a berth for the Rio Olympics with that win. The confidence was not unwarranted, as time was to prove.

Placed 18th in the world, the Incheon Asian Games bronze medallist shot putted to glory with a throw of 20.41 metres. What would have been a two-horse race was affected by the absence of defending champion, Saudi Arabia’s Sultan Abdulmajeed Al-Hebshi. Chinese Taipei’s Chang Ming-Huang took silver with a throw of 19.56 metres, while Tian Zizhong of China took bronze with a throw of 19.25 metres.

Of his win, Singh said,

I could have come up with a 21-plus throw had the temperature been ideal. In Incheon Asian Games also my throw was less than what I could have done. My throw was less here also. But I have won gold for the country and I am proud of it.

Consolatory Finish for Mayookha

Mayookha Johny, looking to find her thunder back, however managed only a sixth place spot. The former Asian champion jumped 6.24 metres for a sixth place finish.

Other Results:

In the heat events, India’s Srabani Nanda clocked 11.61 seconds in the 100 metres semi-finals, while compatriot Gayathry Govindarajan finished seventh in the 100 metres hurdles finals, stopping the clock at 13.69 seconds. Srabani had earlier clocked 11.84 seconds to qualify for the semis. In the women’s 400 metres, Raju Machettira (52.94 seconds) and Rajeev Arokya in the men’s category (46.55 seconds) qualified in the first round.

India thus opened its medal’s tally at Wuhan with Inderjeet Singh’s solid win. Here’s hoping our athletes have an even better second day at the Asian Athletics Championships.
