The team will comprise 13 male and as many female athletes, including Tokyo 2020 Olympian Tajinderpal Singh Toor and Jyothi Yarraji, the women’s national record holder in 100m hurdles. Tajinderpal, who is the national record holder, missed the Commonwealth Games and the World Championships last year, due to a groin injury. But he had shown decent form recently at the National Open Athletics Championship 2022 to clinch a gold medal, with a throw of 20.68m.

On the other hand, Yarraji, a national record holder in women’s 100m hurdles, will compete in the 60m hurdles and also the 60m sprint. Overall, the Indian contingent comprises 13 male and as many female participants. All eyes will be on Shaili Singh, a World U20 Championships silver medallist, and Nayana James, who won silver at the previous Asian Indoor Athletics Championships.

“The selection of these athletes was based on their performances at the 36th National Games and National Open Athletics Championship 2022.” Athletics Federation of India (AFI) president Adille Sumariwalla said while announcing the squad.
