Indian steeplechaser Avinash Sable and triple jumpers Praveen Chithravel and Abdulla Aboobacker will be participating in the Xiamen Diamond League on Saturday.
Coming on the back of a disappointing campaign in the World Championships, the Indian athletes will be eyeing the qualification for the Diamond League finals in Eugene.
It is the 12th Diamond League meeting of the season and one of the last chances for athletes to earn points in their bid to qualify for the series final in Eugene on September 16-17th.
World Champion Neeraj Chopra and long jumper Murali Sreeshankar booked their berth for the Diamond League finals after finishing second and fifth in the Zurich Diamond League, respectively.
Avinash Sable endured a shocking exit in the heats of the 3000m steeplechase while Praveen Chithravel and Abdulla Aboobacker failed to qualify for the final of the Triple Jump at the World Championships in Budapest.

Men's triple jump and 3000m steeplechase events will take place at 5:14 PM IST and 5:37 PM IST, respectively.
