Tokyo Olympics: Kamalpreet Kaur finishes 6th in Discus Throw finals
The 25-year old athlete who had finished second with a throw of 64 metres in the semifinals could only throw 63.70 metres at the finals.
India's medal hopes were dashed in the Women's Discus Throw finals at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics as Kamalpreet Kaur failed to repeat her qualification super-show in the Finals.
The 25-year old athlete who had finished second with a throw of 64 metres in the semifinals could only throw 63.70 metres in the finals.
The match was suspended after the first round because of bad weather conditions, and when the game resumed under the wet and slippery conditions, Kaur could not deliver a shot beyond the 63.70 metres mark.
Kaur’s three throws out of six were foul attempts and on the three valid throws, her highest attempt was recorded at 63.70 metres which was below her qualification throw.
V. Allman of the United States clinched the gold medal with a throw of 68.98 metres, while K. Pudenz of Germany with 66.86 metres won the silver medal.
Y. Perez of Cuba finished third with a throw of 65.72 metres to take the bronze medal.
