Tough luck for India! They miss out on qualifications by 0.88 seconds after an intensely fought 4x400m relay. They created the Asian Record for this category but still missed out on an opportunity to make it to the finals! After the first round of the heat, Muhammed Anas finished last and he was lagging behind. Nirmal Noah was the 2nd on the runners' list and he pulled the team back in the race taking them to 6th before handing over the baton to Arokya Rajiv. Rajiv did an excellent pull and overtook the French team pushing India to 5th and handed over the baton to Amoj Jacob. Amoj had a huge task in his hands but he missed out on the big qualification by a whisker. He overtook the Japanese and pushed Indian rankings to 4th but they fell short and agonisingly miss out on the finals.
