Indian high jumper Tejaswin Shankar finished second in the NACAC New Life invitational event at the Grand Bahama Sports Complex here on Saturday night.
38-year-old Donald Thomas of the Bahamas won the event with a jump of 2.26m. Thomas is a 2007 World Championships gold medallist.
Tejaswin, a 24-year-old Commonwealth Games medallist, produced a leap of 2.21m but fell short of his national record of 2.29m that he achieved in 2018 at the NCAA’s Texas Tech Corky/Crofoot Shootout in April 2018.
Tejaswin won his CWG bronze medal with a jump of 2.22m in Birmingham in 2022.
His second-place finish at the Continental Tour Silver level meet in the Bahamas will earn Tejaswin 1179 points.
Lushane Wilson of Jamaica bagged the joint second place with a 2.21m jump.
