In a shocking turn of events at the World Athletics Championships, national record holder 3000m steeplechaser Avinash Sable failed to qualify for the final round in Budapest on Saturday. Avinash finished a disappointing seventh in his heat race in an unexpected result. Sable, who trained abroad for many months on Sports Ministry’s funding to prepare for this showpiece and was exempted from competing in domestic events, clocked 8 minute and 22.24 seconds to finish seventh in heat number one.
