Shot putter Om Prakash Karhana and long jumper Mayookha Johny won a bronze each as India began their campaign at the 20th Asian Athletics Championships on a mixed note on a rain-marred opening day here on Wednesday.
Star discus thrower Krishna Poonia finished a disappointing fourth, while another medal prospect and reigning Asian Games gold medallist Preeja Shreedharan also was fourth in women's 10,000m on a day that saw intermittent rain, affecting the performance of athletes at Shiv Chhatrapati Stadium at Balewadi here.
Om Prakash, who was struggling all throughout the season, hurled the iron ball to a distance of 19.45 in his second attempt, his season's best though it was more than one meter outside his national record of 20.09m, to give India the first medal of the Championships.
Hi All, For those who doubt that Shoaib and Asif are not Gujjars please go through the link youtu.be/9nSWLXcwPzY I hope this video will put end to this unnecessary controversy, where Asif has accepted that he is Gujjar along with Shoaib, he also agreed to the fact that major reason behind Pakistan good bowling is Gujjars.
