Sundar opened India's account at the World Para Athletics Championships by clinching gold in the men's javelin throw event.

Bulgaria's Dechko Ovcharov.Luxembourg's Tom Habscheid took home the silver medal with a personal best mark of 46.83m, while there was a clear victor at the end in the form of Aled Davies, who smashed the Championship record to finish at 51.54m. Though Indian side missed the presence of Paralympic gold medallist Devendra Jhajharia, Sundar who was disqualified from his event in Rio 2016 due to technical reasons, did not let the country down. The Grand Prix which was held in March this year saw him winning three gold medals, which were in discus, shot put and in the javelin throw.

The World Para Athletics Championships will run through to 23 July. My morale was completely broken then, but I am delighted with this comeback to competition. The talented athlete from Rohtak, who had finished fifth in Rio, bettered his personal best from the Paralympics with a throw of 55.12m, to end fourth and narrowly miss out on another medal for India.
