Indian athletes disappoint again

Ghamanda Ram timed 1:48.17 seconds in the 800M — better than his first-leg show — but still had to settle for silver behind Iran’s Sajad Moradi (1:47.95). Seema Antil also came up with a slight improvement, her 50.64 metres fetching her the bronze in women’s discus.

Mayookha Johny leapt to 13.71 metres in women’s triple jump in a repeat of her first-leg effort but was pushed to fifth place with two of her rivals -- — Limei Xie of China and Aleksandra Kotlyarova of Uzbekistan — delivering 14M jumps.
