Murali Sreeshankar: 1st Indian Athlete In Long Jump
The 23-year-old long jumper Murali has performed consistently well this year. Ranked second on the season’s leaderboard, Murali is one of India’s biggest medal hopes at the championships. He did not disappoint at all. His good performance continued in the World Championship as well. In his second run, Murali jumped 8.00m straight to reach the finals. Indian long jumpers finished second in Group ‘B’ and seventh overall in the qualifying round.

However, Jaswin Aldrin and Mohammad Anis could not reach the finals. Aldrin and Anis jumped 7.79 meters and 7.73 meters respectively. They finished ninth and 11th respectively in Group ‘A’ of the qualification round. As a result, Murali will represent India alone in the long jump final.
He became the first Indian male long jumper to qualify for the finals. Meanwhile, Avinal Sable also performed well in the steeplechase. Avinash’s time in the 3000m steeplechase is 8:18.75. He also qualified for the finals directly like Murali.
As a result, now India is dreaming of winning the first medal in the World Athletics Championship at the hands of Murali and Avinash. Avinash will enter the finals on Tuesday according to Indian time. Avinash, 27, qualified for the finals of the same category in Doha three years ago.
