Inderjeet Singh

Inderjeet Singh scripted history as he became the first Indian to clinch a gold in athletics in the World University Games by winning the men’s shot put event in Gwangju, Korea. He won the event with his final throw of 20.27m at the Gwangju Universiade Main Stadium to open India’s gold medal account in the Games. Singh has had a phenomenal year with five gold medals in all five international events he has participated thus far in 2015. He had won Asian Championships in China with 20.41m before bagging a gold in each of the three legs of the Asian Grand Prix in Thailand last month.
He won a bronze in the Asian Games last year with 19.63m.
