Earlier on Thursday, Rohan Kamble gave the Indian contingent reason to smile by making it to the mens 400m hurdles semi-finals in the World Athletics U20 Championships. He was the only Indian athlete who progressed to the next round a day after the countrys 4x400m relay mixed team claimed bronze.
On a day when the World Athletics President Lord Sebastian Coe met and encouraged the Indian team, Kamble booked a berth in the 400m hurdles semifinals by finishing fourth in the last of the five heats.
He clocked 55.00 seconds when all he needed to do was finish the race after Saad Hinti (Morocco) did not start and Amar Eded (Qatar) was disqualified for a false start. Hardeep Kumar hit a hurdle in the opening heats and was credited with a time of 1:12.80.
On Friday, Kunwar Ajai Raj Singh Rana will need to register a personal best to get a podium finish in the mens javelin throw while Shaili Singh will seek qualification for the womens long jump final and Pooja will bid to secure a berth in the 1500m final.
