    Chithravel finishes sixth

    A decent outing for Praveen Chithravel. A sixth-place finish with a best jump of 16.59 on his return from injury.

    The night though belonged to Hugues Fabrice Zango of Burkina Faso, who hit a last-ditch 17.70m to take the win away from Jamaican wunderkind Jaydon Hibbert, who thought he had won the event.

    Chithravel goes up to 16.59

    Chithravel finds a bigger jump. 16.59m, but he remains sixth and that will be his final position.

    Fifth Round Begins!

    Triki can only manage 16.98 in Round Five. Hibbert opts out of jumping, while Pontvianne faults again.

  • July 22, 2023 00:55
    Chithravel goes 16.32

    Just 16.32 m from Chithravel in the fourth attempt. No change in his position in the table.

  • July 22, 2023 00:47
    Fourth Round Begins!

    Triki starts the fourth round with a 17.03, despite a -1.0 head wind. Hibbert pulls off a massive jump - 17.66m - to take the lead. The 18-year-old Cuban has a season/personal best of 17.87.

  • July 22, 2023 00:39
    16.54m for Praveen Chithravel

    Once again, Chithravel improves. Now he is at 16.54. But once again, it is not good enough to move him up the field. If he can pull off his season/personal best, he can go top of the pile.

  • July 22, 2023 00:30
    Third Round Begins!

    Zango can only manage 16.74. Hibbert marks his third 17+ jump, but can’t improve his mark.

    All three of Martinez, Claye and Pontvianne faults in the third attempt.

    Yasser Triki takes the lead with a season-best effort of 17.32.

  • July 22, 2023 00:28
    Chithravel goes 16.44

    Better from Chithravel. He goes up to 16.44m. Not close to his best, nor near his competitors. But he has four more jumps left.

  • July 22, 2023 00:22
    Second Round Begins!

    Zango faults in the second attempt. Hibbert takes the lead of the event with a 17.23. Claye too faults.

  • July 22, 2023 00:18
    Praveen Chithravel starts with 15.69m

    Not the greatest start for the Indian. Just 15.69 from him, the lowest mark so far.

  • July 22, 2023 00:16
    First round in progress

    Three-time Olympic medallist Will Claye is next. Only 16.21 from him.

  • July 22, 2023 00:12

    Praveen Chithravel and Jeswin Aldrin will have to prove fitness ahead of Budapest World Championships says AFI

    Despite breaching the tough qualification standards of the World Championships earlier this year, India’s national record holder in the triple jump -- Praveen Chithravel -- and in long jump -- Jeswin Aldrin -- have been informed by the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) that they will need to prove their fitness before they will be allowed to compete at the World Championships in Budapest next month.

  • July 21, 2023 23:21

    This will be Praveen Chithravel’s Diamond League debut and he will be the only Indian participating.

    The 22-year-old, who set the national record earlier this year, is returning from an injury that kept him away from the Asian Athletics Championships.

    Praveen, 22, broke Renjith Maheswary’s seven-year-old national record of 17.30m with a jump of 17.37m at the Prueba de Confrontacion athletics meet in Havana in May this year.
