Avinash Sable broke his own national record in the 3000m steeplechase by finishing sixth in eight minutes 9.91 seconds at the Diamond League competition in Paris on Sunday, showing that he is getting into rhythm for the first time since the Paris Olympics. The 29-year-old Sable broke his previous national record of 8:11.20 seconds which he set in 2022. In this way he improved his time by one and a half seconds.

Ethiopia’s Abraham Sime finished first in a ‘photo finish’ with a time of 8:02.36 over Kenya’s Amos Serem. Kenya’s Abraham Kibiwott finished third with a time of 8:06.70. Sable had set a national record two years ago by winning a silver medal at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham and he was successful in breaking it. This was his 10th national record-breaking performance. At the same time, Olympic team member Kishore Jena’s struggle continued in the men’s javelin throw event and he finished eighth with an effort of 78.10 meters.

His best performance is 87.54 meters and the best performance of the season is 80.84 meters. Jena, who won a silver medal in the Asian Games last year, has not performed well this season. He threw 76.31 meters in the Doha Diamond League and 75.49 meters in the Federation Cup. Current Olympic and world champion javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra decided not to play in this competition due to a thigh problem.
