Tajinder's retirement means an early curtain on India's campaign at the World Athletics Championships on the first day. What a day it has been though!
It started on a disappointing note with both racewalkers - Priyanka Goswami and Sandeep Kumar, registering sorry performances to finish 34th and 40th in their respective 20km racewalk.
Avinash Sable then lifted the spirits by qualifying for the 3000m Steeplechase final for second consecutive time and Sreeshankar continued it by becoming the first Indian man to qualify for long jump final before Tajinder had a "r" marked against his name.

Well, Tajinderpal Singh Toor and his disappointments in World events continue. The shotputter has an "r" marked against his name on the World Athletics website and that could mean just one thing - the Indian has retired from the event without a single throw.
