India record best-ever 9 medal haul at World Para Athletics Championship

@ParalympicIndia
India has recorded the best-ever nine medals haul at the World Para Athletics Championship in Dubai.

With two gold, two silver and five bronze, India secured 13 qualifying spots at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. Until this edition, London 2017 had been India's best-ever show where the para-athletes finished with five medals in the joint 34th place.

Asian Para Games 2018 champion javelin thrower Sandeep Chaudhary in F64 category won the Gold for India. In the same event, India had its single two podium finish with Sumit Antil taking the silver (62.88m).  

Another gold came from Sundar Singh Gurjar who defended his Worlds title in men's javelin F46 category with a season's best distance of 61.22 metres.

Seasoned high jumper Sharad Kumar claimed the other silver medal for India, clearing the bar at a season-best 1.83 metres in men's high jump T63 finals.

China topped the medals tally with 59 medals including 25 gold. Brazil (39) and Great Britain (28) followed China. The USA ended fourth with 34 medals. Russia, participating in the championships for the first time since the 2016 doping ban, were sixth with 41 medals.
