Poonia gets into groove before Olympic testLondon: Top Indian discus thrower Krishna Poonia seemed to be getting in groove for the upcoming Olympics as she threw an impressive 63.16m in the Woodford Green Open Graded Meet here.

Poonia`s fine attempt came at an event organised by the Woodford Green and Essex Ladies Athletics Club at Ashton Playing Field ground here yesterday.

Krishna is hopeful of breaching the 65m barrier with her husband and coach Virender saying that the athlete seems to be in great shape.

"Today`s throw shows we are on track to deliver peak results during the Olympic Games. Hitting big distance in the opening rounds is essential to remain in contention and that`s what Krishna achieved today with 63m opener," he said.

Krishna will compete in one more local meet before the qualification round of Olympic Games on August 3.
