An Indian steeplechase master and a national record holder, Avinash Sable, finishes 11th in the 3000m steeplechase final at World Athletics Championships 2022, held in Oregon.

The 27-year-old Sable clocked 8:31.75 and failed to impress the masses. His performance this time was way below his season’s and personal best of 8:12.48, which is a national record.

Olympic champion Soufiane El Bakkali again won the gold with a time of 8:25.13s, and Laecha Girmia clinched silver and clocked 8:26.01. Conseslus Kipruto from Kenya settled for the bronze medal (8:27.92).

Before the final race, Avinash Sable was mentally and physically prepared but unfortunately couldn’t mark its feat in the top 5 in World Athletics Championships 2022, Oregon. The Indian runner made efforts to recover lost ground during the final time but it was too late.
