India’s Inderjeet Singh became only the third Indian on Sunday to make it to the final of World Championships after finishing eighth in the Shot Put qualification at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing on Sunday
The 27-year-old recovered quickly after putting forth 2 unimpressive efforts in his first 2 attempts and came up with an effort of 20.47m, in his final attempt thereby joining Anju Bobby George and Vikas Gowda as the only others from India to make the cut.
Inderjeet has had an exceptional year so far, where he has won a staggering 8 gold medals including 3 consecutive golds at the Asian Grand Prix games and one each at the Asian Athletics Championships and World University Games.
Anju BobbyGeorge won the bronze medal in the Long Jump category at the 2003 edition of the Championships while Vikas Gowda finished in 7th position in his fiinal at the 2011 Championships, that was held in Daegu.
Purely judging on form, the 27-year-old Shot putter could well join Anju in getting a medal and add another medal to his already glittering tally in 2015.
The final will take place at 5 P.M on Sunday.
