Abdulla Aboobacker, Praveen Chithravel, and Eldhose Paul will be in action in the Men’s triple jump in Birmingham 2022. The triple jumpers representing India will aim for more than one podium finish in the event. Among the three, Abdulla has the best personal best (17.19 m). While the youth Olympic medallist Praveen recorded 17.18 m in the Inter-state Nationals athletics championships. However, the triple jumper who has been the most consistent is Eldhose Paul. Eldhose, whose personal best is 16.99m, reached the finals of the World Athletics Championships held last month. One of the strong contenders in this event will be English Olympian, Ben Williams. But, Ben hasn’t been in form lately securing 26th place in the World Championships which might just go in favour of the Indians.

In the Indian subcontinent, it will be telecast LIVE from Birmingham on Sony TEN 1, Sony TEN 2, Sony TEN 3, Sony SIX, and Sony TEN 4.

Murali clinched the silver on his debut CWG with a jump of 8.08 m. The gold medallist Laquan Nairn acquired a similar distance but his second jump (7.98m) was better than Murali’s second jump (7.84m).
