That's it from us here, do join us for the coverage of men's 20 km walk at 11:00 pm.

...

That is very disappointing for the Indian contingent, a disappointing day altogether. 

...

NOO! Vikas Gowda fails to qualify, his last throw only of 58.70 m.

...

Vikas Gowda is now 14th in his own group out of 18 people. The injury seems to be bothering him at the moment.

...
...

Vikas managed to better his score, but only marginally, his score is 58.99 in the second throw.

...

Christoph Harting of Germany who had foul on his first throw, now leads the pack with a throw of 64.49.

...

To qualify for the finals, as things stand, with two athletes already qualifying with distances higher than 65.50 m, Gowda has to throw a distance of around 62 to more or less make sure that he reaches the final.

...

Hopefully he was just warming up, and he can pull out a season best from somewhere.

...

Just to put things into perspective, that's his worst throw since Qatar Asian Games in 2006.

...

Vikas Gowda has taken his throw, a very poor 57.59 m. He is currently 10th in the standings of Group B.

...

If Vikas Gowda gets anywhere near his best 66.28 m, he will definitely fly into the next round.

...

HARSTEDT Axel now leads the leaderboard with 63.58, the conditions are bit difficult with none of the players getting to their Season Best yet. 

...

His first throw will be very important, especially with his injury hampering the build up to the competition.

...

There are high hopes on Vikas Gowda, the Commonwealth Games gold medalist has been in prime form in the last two years or so.

...

KOVAGO Zoltan with the first throw in the event, with a distance of 59.83 m.

...

Malachowski Piotr has come out with a gigantic throw of 65.89 m, that'll take him to the next round.

...

The Group A of the event has started, WEISSHAIDINGER Lukas has already hit the distance needed for Qualifying, by hitting a 65.86.

...

Vikas Gowda's best performance by far was at Asian Championships in 2013 where he hit a 64.90.

...

Vikas Gowda will compete with 32 other athletes, among which the best 12 will qualify to the next round. Of course, they can do it the easy way by toppling the qualifying distance of 65.50.
