World Athletics Championships India Medals

World Athletics Championship is the best platform to determine the 27 members Indian squad against the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games which is considered as the world’s leading platform to grab the global awards with the toughest competitors.

To begin with, India embarked on a team of 25 sportspersons and included ace jogger Dutee Chand in the women’s 100 meters run. It was a big knock-back when Hima Dass, a world junior 400m champion exasperated with a lower back injury and moved out of the team. In the revival, Archana Suseendran in women’s 200m and Anjali Devi in women’s 400m joined the Indian team in World Championship.

After India’s premier athlete Jinson Johnson bagged the silver medal in the 150m race in the ISTF Berlin event recently, it helped him in qualifying for the World Athletics Championship to be held in Doha. The 28-year-old Jinson smashed his own 150m national record which he had clocked at Nijmegen in the Netherlands.

Annu Rani, an Indian athlete, put her best efforts in IAAF World Athletics Championship, 2019 being held in Doha at Khalida International Stadium, but was not able to bag laurels for her country. Though she was placed at 8th position out of 12 in Javelin throw final.

Avinash Sable of India smashed his own national record and entered the men’s final of 3000m Steeplechase final race. Due to the hurdles in his path, his speed was slowed down. After the appeal of the Athletics Federation of India, he got a fair decision and has qualified for the finals.

It is a big discontentment for the Indian team at Doha because of the non appearance of its two big names – Neeraj Chopra and Hima Dass in the IAAF World Athletes Championship.

Break a leg, India! Jai Hind!
