Chandigarh: Indian shot putter Tajinderpal Singh Toor has been ruled out of the Tokyo Olympics today. He failed to qualify for the men’s shot put final after finishing 13th in the Group A qualifiers.
Toor had qualified for the Olympics in June at the Indian Grand Prix with an individual best of 21.49 meters. He was able to throw a standard throw in the first attempt of the Olympics which was 19.99 meters. He finished 13th out of 16 contestants. Two attempts by Toor, who was playing with a bandage on his shoulder, failed. Before the second qualifying round, the tour was over. In both the qualifying rounds, those who have crossed 21.20 meters or at least 12 competitors will reach the final.
On this occasion Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh tweeted that you gave your best and we are all proud of you. It doesn’t matter if you don’t win a medal this time. I am sure that sooner or later you will win this too. Keep working
