Asian Athletics: Vikas Gowda And Lalita Babar Triumph


At 6′ 9” and a 140 kilograms, Vikas Gowda walks like a king. And he proved himself to be one at the Wuhan Sports Centre today. On the penultimate day of the Asian Athletics Championship, the Asian Games bronze medalist added another gold to India’s kitty with a remarkable performance in discus throw.


Vikas Gowda: The Golden Shot

Gowda took the yellow metal with a throw of 62.03 metres. Given the golden form he has been in, his inclusion in the TOPS scheme looks well justified.  The 21-years-old had taken bronze in the Shanghai Diamond League earlier last month, and had also qualified for the prestigious Beijing World Championships to be held in August with a whooping throw of 65.23 metres. Then he went on to win the Triton Invitational at La Jolla.

Lalita Babar Takes Gold

Vikas Gowda was joined in the celebrations by Lalita Babar, who took the top spot on the podium in 3000m steeplechase. She clocked 9:34.13 seconds to break her own National record. Her gold-winning performance earned her a greater happiness by assuring her of a seat on the plane to the Rio Olympics 2016.

Govindan Strikes Again

Newbie Lakshmanan Govindan took his second medal in the championships today. After taking bronze in 5000 metres, the 25-years-old took silver today in the 10000 metres event, stopping the clock at 29:42.81 seconds.

Other Results:

Dharambir Singh qualified in the 200 metres semi-finals, coming in second in 20.87 seconds. Unfortunately, Anu Raghavan missed out on a bronze in the 400 metres hurdles (57.79 seconds). Ace sprinter Srabani Nanda (23.71 seconds) and P T Usha’s protege, Tintu Luka (2:06.33) qualified in the women’s 200 metres and 800 metres heat events respectively. Gomathi Marimuthu also met the cut in the 800 metres, in 2:11.41 seconds.

India now has eight medals to its credit, which includes three gold, three silver and two bronze. For further updates from Wuhan, stay tuned to Sports Rediscovered.
