    Thank you for joining in!

    Thank you for tuning into our coverage from Day 7 of the World Athletics Championships. That's all we have in what has been a cracker of a day for India.

    What a day this has been!

    2 events of Indian interest and 3 Indians qualify for the Final. Quite some day for Indian athletics - might be one of the better ones in history. 

    Neeraj Chopra started it off when he reached the Hayward field at 5:35am and packed his back to leave at 5:36am. While the Olympic champion made it without breaking a sweat, the inexperienced Rohit Yadav and Eldhose Paul had their nerves tested.


    Neeraj Chopra qualifies for Javelin Throw final with only throw of 88.39m.

    Rohit Yadav qualifies for Javelin Throw final with best of 80.42m.

    Eldhose Paul becomes first Indian to reach Triple Jump with a best of 16.68m.

    What a day for India. Now, Rohit Yadav has also confirmed his berth in the final of Javelin Throw. He finishes 11th overall with a best of 80.42m.

    Javelin - 77.32m for Rohit Yadav

    A mediocre 77.32m for Rohit Yadav in his final attempt, but I think he is should be through courtesy his first throw. We will wait for an official confirmation though.

    There is the q for Eldhose Paul

    3 Indians in Triple Jump, and only one survives for the final and it is the one whose PB of 16.99m was the lowest among three.

    16.34m for Eldhose Paul

    It is 16.34m for Eldhose Paul in his final attempt, but it doesn't matter. He is through. What a day for the youngster. His World Championships debut and he has done just about enough to reach the final.

    Absolutely brilliant!

    Eldhose Paul qualifies for final!

    He is yet to take his final jump, but Eldhose Paul is through. He can't be dethroned from the 12th position anymore. Brilliant from the Kerala lad.
