Tajinder Pal Singh Toor and Jyothi Yarraji will be among the Indian athletes to watch out for.

The upcoming Asian Athletics Championships 2023 will mark the 25th edition of this prestigious event. After a remarkable 50-year hiatus, Thailand will once again welcome athletes from across Asia as the host country. The prestigious Supachalasai National Stadium in Bangkok will be the venue for this championship which will take place from July 12 to 16, 2023.This event will also serve as a qualification stage for athletes hoping to participate at the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

Unfortunately, the previous edition in Hangzhou, China which was originally planned for May 2021, had to be called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic making this upcoming championship even more eagerly anticipated.

India has had a good run in the event and emerged as the leading country in the medal standings during the 2017 championships held in Bhubaneswar. P.T. Usha achieved remarkable success in the Asian Championship amassing an unprecedented total of 23 medals including an impressive 14 golds during her impressive tenure from 1983 to 1998.

After careful evaluation of performances in the Federation Cup 2023 and earlier competitions until June 6, the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) has finalized the Indian team for the Asian Athletics Championships 2023. The Indian team boasts an impressive lineup of 28 men and 26 women. This powerhouse of talent is ready to dominate the competition at the Asian Athletics Championships 2023.

The performances at the National Inter-State Senior Athletics Championships in Bhubaneswar from June 15 to 19 were not taken into consideration for the continental event.

Indian athletes to watch out for

Tajinder Pal Singh Toor

Keep an eye out for Indian shot putter Tajinder Pal Singh Toor, an absolute force to be reckoned with! With a glorious gold medal under his belt from the 2018 Asian Games, Toor is undoubtedly one of the top contenders for a podium finish at the upcoming continental meet. During the Federation Cup in Ranchi earlier this year, he shattered records set at the Asian Athletics Championships and Asian Games.

Toor continued to reach new heights as he recently surpassed his own Asian and national records with an astonishing throw of 21.77m at the National Inter-State Championships.

Jyothi Yarraji

Jyothi Yarraji, the record-breaking star in the women's 100m hurdles, is undoubtedly a frontrunner for a medal in the upcoming competition. Despite her young age of 23, she has already made an indelible mark in the world of athletics. Yarraji's stellar season has been adorned with numerous medals earned through outstanding performances in international competitions.

Her recent triumphs are the inter-state championships where she claimed the gold and secured her place in the Asian Athletics Championships with an impressive timing of 12.89 seconds clocked at the Federation Cup 2023.

Murali Sreeshankar

Prepare to witness the extraordinary talents of Murali Sreeshankar and Jeswin Aldrin as they represent India in the fiercely competitive men's long jump event. Sreeshankar, who recently stunned the athletics world with a phenomenal personal best leap of 8.41m at the National Inter-State Championships is set to soar to new heights on the international stage.

Indian athletes who will miss the event

In a significant setback for the country, several prominent Indian athletes have withdrawn from the forthcoming Asian Athletics Championships 2023.

Among them are Praveen Chithravel, the triple jumper, who recorded an impressive three jumps of over 17 meters this year and Rohit Yadav, the javelin thrower who achieved remarkable distances of over 81 meters on three separate occasions this season. Their absence from the championships leaves a notable void in the Indian contingent.

Jeswin Aldrin, who set a remarkable National record of 8.42m during the Indian Open jumps competition in Bellary back in March, made the difficult decision to withdraw from the event. Citing his ongoing recovery from the weakness caused by a previous bout of Covid, Aldrin prioritized his health and well-being.

Quartermilers Muhammed Anas and Anjali Devi will not be able to compete in the Asian Athletics Championships. Due to unforeseen circumstances their entries reached the organizers late resulting in their exclusion from the event.

Two notable athletes who will unfortunately miss the Asian Athletics Championships are Neeraj Chopra and Avinash Sable. Both athletes are currently focusing on their training in preparation for the World Athletics Championships which will take place in August.

Where and how to watch live telecast and live streaming of Asian Athletics Championships 2023 in India?
