Tokyo. Asian record holder shot put player Tejinder Pal Singh Toor missed out on a place in the finals of the Olympic qualification by finishing 13th in Group A. Toor qualified for the Olympics in June at the Indian Grand Prix with an individual best performance of 21.49m. He could only throw a valid throw in the first attempt at the Olympics, which was 19.99 meters.
He finished 13th out of 16 contestants. Two attempts by Toor, who played with a bandage on his shoulder, were illegal. Toor crashed out before the second qualification (Group B). At least 12 competitors who pass 21.20 meters in both qualifying rounds will advance to the final.
