Tajinder Pal Singh Toor betters own Asian shot put record

Tajinder Pal Singh Toor could not have timed his comeback better. Three months before the Asian Games, the burly shot putter shattered his own Asian record with a huge throw of 21.77m. His personal best of 21.49m achieved two years ago was the previous national and Asian record.

Toor got the mark in his third attempt, having started with 21.09m. The throw was big enough to land him a spot in the Budapest World Championships (21.40m qualifying mark). The Asian Games qualifying mark was a modest 19m.

It puts him at ninth place in the world this season. American Olympic and world champion Ryan Crouser heads the chart with a sensational 23.56m -- the world record – this season..
