Sundar gives India first gold

17 July 2017, 01:53 | Terri Saunders

On a night where the host nation Britain claimed five gold medals and six world records fell, the Indian hopefuls failed to make the podium finish on the day two of the World Para Athletics Championships in London.

Bulgaria's Dechko Ovcharov.Luxembourg's Tom Habscheid took home the silver medal with a personal best mark of 46.83m, while there was a clear victor at the end in the form of Aled Davies, who smashed the Championship record to finish at 51.54m. My morale was completely broken then, but I am delighted with this comeback to competition.

After the event, Sundar told how he felt after Rio and how he trained for World Championships. I have recovered fully and will do even better at the Asian Games [next year].
