DP Manu had really gained the advantage after the opening throw when the javelin final began on Sunday. He was in contention for the gold medal after throwing 78.2 meters in the opening round.

He was able to up his game in the subsequent round, throwing an incredible 79.83 meters while keeping an easy advantage of 2 meters for the gold medal. Japan’s Roderik Genke Dean had other ideas.

As Pakistan’s Muhammad Yasir challenged DP Manu in the last round, the competition became more heated and tight. Yasir’s incredible throw of 79.93 meters temporarily moved Manu to third place. Manu didn’t give up though, and on his sixth try, he blasted an incredible 81.01m throw to win the silver.

At the Asian Athletics Championships, Manu was the lone Indian competing in the javelin final. Neeraj Chopra missed this competition in order to carry on his preparations for the Athletics World Championships overseas. Manu’s first teammate Rohit Yadav was later removed from the lineup owing to an injury.
