Indian para-athletes Praveen Kumar and Unni Renu continued their country’s great run at the ongoing Para Asian Games Hangzhou with a double podium finish in men’s high-jump event on Monday. While Praveen Kumar secured a gold medal for India, Unni bagged the bronze medal for India in men’s high jump T64 final.

Praveen Kumar’s best jump of 2.02 m gave him the top prize. Uzbekistan’s Temurbek Giyazov fell just short of gold with a jump of 2.00 m as his best. Unni’s best effort of 1.95 m was good enough for him to earn a bronze.

India has a total of 17 medals in the event so far, with six gold, six silver and five bronze medals. India has bagged 11 of these medals in athletics itself, with five gold, three silver and bronze medals each.
