Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the men's high jump T47 of the World Para-Athletics Championships. The event starts in a few minutes and we cannot wait to see Ram Pal Chahar in action here in London.

Having recorded his personal best jump in the Rio Paralympics last year, Ram Pal Chahar will be eyeing bigger things when he takes to the field in the men’s high jump T47 category at the ongoing World Para Athletics Championships 2017.

The men’s high jump T47 category final is scheduled for 11.53 pm Indian Standard Time, and Ram Pal will square off to eight other finalists later today.

Ram Pal’s season best jump has been 1.81 metres while his personal best stands at 1.93 metres. The Indian high jumper will need to better his personal best to stand any chance of a medal win later today since the final line-up comprises four players with a personal best record better than Ram Pal’s.
