Having broken the national record nine times, Avinash Sable is one of the athletes to watch out for in Birmingham 2022. In 2015, the steeplechaser took up running as a sport under the army’s athletics program. When he played the cross country competitions, his talent became evident. Due to an injury, he gained a lot of weight. He underwent rigorous training, lost 24 kg, and returned to the field. Since then, the steeplechaser has shone brighter than ever, breaking and creating new records.
In 2022, Sable set up a new NR, clocking 8:12.48 in the Meeting International Mohamed VI tournament in Rabat, Morocco. But, his recent performance in the World Athletics Championships 2022 wasn’t as impressive as he clocked 8:31.75 to finish 11th. However, Avinash has time and again proved himself and will be eyeing a stronger comeback in Birmingham 2022.
