“I could have come up with a 21-plus throw had the temperature been ideal. At the Incheon Asian Games also, my throw was less than what I could have done. My throw was less here also. But I have won gold for the country and I am proud of it,” Inderjeet said after winning the gold.
Inderjeet had won a silver medal at the 2013 World University Games and a bronze medal at the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon. He has grabbed the gold in his fourth attempt.
In other categories, Long jumpers Ankit Sharma (7.56m) and Kumaravel Prem Kumar (7.51m), as well as sprinter Srabani Nanda (11.61 secs in women’s 100m) also qualified for the finals.
