World Athletics Championships: Race Walking Revived

Share

Indian race walking has been rekindled.The brownie points for fanning the cinders, however, go to a Russian. Finishing eighth in the Taicang Race Walking Cup (this, after not sporting a single Indian in the event almost 3 years ago), Khushbir Kaur’s National Record in the 20km, Irfan Kolothum Thodi finishing 10th, and Basant Rana setting a National Record in 50 km, in the London Olympics, all look like mammoth achievements, given the sorry state the sport was in, before India’s coach Artsybashev’s arrival. On Day 2 of the World Athletics Championships, three Indians participated in the 20 km event, with Gurmeet Singh finishing 35th. India’s hope in shot put, Inderjeet Singh, however failed to impress, and finished last.

Inderjeet Singh: Baahubali Fails?

Officals’ Slip-up Provides Momentary Joy:

Gurmeet stopped the clocks at 1:25.22, while compatriot Chandan Singh came in at the 41st position (1:26.40 seconds). Baljinder Singh was initially ranked 12th, but the officials later reverted the results, showing he hadn’t finished the race. Spaniard Miguel Lopez took gold (1:19.14), China’s Zhen Wang took silver (1:19.29) and  Canadian Benjamin Thorne took bronze (1:19.57).

Inderjeet Singh makes it to the Finals:

Indian athletics’ new poster boy Inderjeet Singh, qualified for the shot put finals, but could manage only a 11th place finish. The Asian Athletics gold medalist hurled the ball to 19.52 metres in his first attempt, was disqualified for the second attempt, and could come up with just a meagre 18.68 metres on the third go. Singh finished fourth during the qualifiers, with a best throw of 20.47 metres in his second attempt, thereby becoming the first Indian to make it to the finals of the event. Joe Kovacs took gold in the event with a throw of 21.93 metres, while David Storl (21.74 metres) and Richards O’Daynhe (21.69 metres) took bronze.

Summary:

India failed to make much of an impact on the first day either. Yet to open its account in the championships, the Indian contingent will be looking to reverse its luck in the coming days. Here’s to wishing them all the very best. stay tuned to Sports Rediscovered for more from the Beijing National stadium. For more info, click here.
