cancel

Rio de Janeiro: India's Renjith Maheshwary finished a disappointing 30th to crash out of the qualification round men's triple jump at the Rio Olympics here on Monday.

Competing in his second Olympics, Maheshwary found himself at the 11th spot in the qualifiers, after an effort of 15.80 metres in his first attempt, which was way short of the qualification mark.

In the second attempt, the Indian jumped 16.13m, which still was short of the qualification mark of 16.95m. Placed at the 23rd spot, he was under pressure to hit the qualification mark in the final attempt.

He could just manage a jump of 15.99 in the third and final attempt to negate any chances of qualifying for the final round.

Christian Taylor of the US topped the qualification stage with a jump of 17.24m followed by China's Bin Dong at second with 17.10m while another US athlete, Will Claye, jumped 17.05m to emerge third.
