She dropped to sixth straight after the prone round, but then made a strong comeback and ended the tournament with a third place.
good friday for india
Friday was a lucky day for India at the Tokyo Paralympics. The silver medal had also fallen into India’s hands before Avani won the bronze medal. Praveen Kumar won the silver medal for India in the men’s high jump. He achieved this feat by jumping a height of 2.07 metres. Praveen Kumar’s performance was better than his personal best. He has also set a new Asian record with such a high jump.

Barely an hour after Praveen Kumar’s silver medal, Avani Lekhar gave India another chance to celebrate by winning a medal in shooting. Avani, who has won two medals so far, will now once again enter the shooting range and win the third medal for the country on 5 September.
After winning medals in high jump and shooting, India’s hopes of winning more medals in other sports have increased. India has reached the semi-finals of badminton singles and mixed doubles. Indian archers have also qualified for the next round.
