Birmingham: Ace Indian swimmer Sajan Prakash’s campaign ended at the Commonwealth Games as he failed to make the semifinals of the men’s 100m butterfly event here on Monday. The seasoned Prakash clocked 54.36 seconds to finish seventh in his heat and 19th overall. The best 16 athletes progress to the semifinals.He had failed to make the finals of his other two events — 50m and 200m butterfly as well.
On Sunday, he had finished a disappointing ninth in the men’s 200m butterfly, his pet event.
Now all the indian swimming fans are keeping their eye on Srihari Nataraj who will show up in the men’s 100m backstroke finals which will be held at 1:07 am on Tuesday.
Apart from swimming, other athletes are also trying their best to keep their campaign going in Commonwealth Games 2022. The India weightlifters have shown their strength by winning all the 3 medals, gold, silver and bronze at Birmingham 2022. India are also ready to book a medal in Lawn Bowls as the team has qualified for the finals after defeating New Zealand in semi final.
Indian fans lauded the athletes. Here are some reactions.
Proud to see India on the medal list🇮🇳 ♥️♥️😊☺️
