World Athletics Championships 2022 Day 1 Highlights: Avinash Sable, Murali Sreeshankar qualify for final

The Hayward Field in Oregon, USA, is all set to host the World Athletics Championships 2022. The tournament will begin on July 15 and end on July 24. The Indian contingent will be headlined by Neeraj Chopra, who is India's first Olympic athletics gold medalist in Tokyo 2020. The Indian contingent consists of Tajinderpal Singh Toor (shot put), Kamalpreet Kaur (discus throw), Priyanka Goswami (20km race walk), Murali Sreeshankar (lengthy jump), Jeswin Aldrin (lengthy jump), Avinash Sable (3000m steeplechase) and Seema Punia (discus throw). With the experienced players in the contingent, this is India's best chance of making WAC 2022 a memorable outing.
