Arpinder Singh, biggest attraction at National Open Athletics Championships
Arpinder will be competing on the final day of the competition.
Arpinder, who became the first Indian triple jumper to claim a gold medal at the Asian Games last month, continued his rich vein of form, having won a bronze at the IAAF Continental Cup in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
The 25-year-old Arpinder was representing the Asia-Pacific team in the meet, held once every four years. He had jumped 16.77m in Jakarta and has a personal best of 17.17m which he recorded in 2014.
Joining him at the four-day event will be Dharun Ayyasamy who won a silver medal with a new national record time of 48.96 seconds in the men's 400m hurdles and V Neena who claimed a silver medal in the women's long jump competition with a jump of 6.51m at the Gelora Bung Karno stadium in Jakarta last month.
