Parul Chaudhary, the Asian Champion, achieved a remarkable feat during the women’s 3000m Steeplechase final at the World Athletics Championships. Parul Chaudhary’s impressive time of 9:15.31 not only secured her 11th place in the final but also shattered the longstanding National record. This exceptional performance of Parul Chaudhary also earned her a spot in the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Parul Chaudhary, at 28 years of age, not only established a new personal best but also surpassed the seven-year-old national record previously held by Lalita Babbar since the 2016 Rio Olympics. By achieving a timing of 9:15.31, Parul not only surpassed the qualifying standard of 9:23.00 for the 2024 Olympics but also earned the distinction of being the fourth-fastest Asian Steeplechaser in history.

The 3000m Steeplechase event brought disappointment to Indian supporters early on, as Avinash Sable, a Commonwealth Games silver medalist, unexpectedly exited in the initial round. However, Parul, determined to improve and heed Sable’s advice, aspired to achieve her personal best and secure an Olympic qualification.

Despite being ranked ninth among the 12 athletes in her heat, Parul seemed unlikely to advance to the finals on paper. Running alongside former World Champions and Diamond League victors, Parul delivered a remarkable performance, surpassing her previous efforts. This exceptional run led her to secure the fifth position in her heat and clinch a spot in the final round of the competition.

Parul’s exceptional performance saw her achieving a time of 9 minutes and 15.31 seconds, surpassing the existing national record by a significant margin of over four seconds. Impressively, this marks the third instance in this season where Parul Chaudhary has surpassed her own personal best timing.
