New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday congratulated Asian Games medallists, praising the performance of “phenomenal” Tajinderpal Singh Toor and “unstoppable” Avinash Sable in shot put and steeplechase events respectively.
While Toor defended his title with an amazing final throw to beat back the challenge from his Saudi Arabian rival, Sable became the first Indian man to win the gold medal in 3000 m steeplechase at the Asian Games.
“The phenomenal @Tajinder_Singh3 at his best. Congratulations on a consecutive Gold Medal in the Shot Put event at the Asian Games. His performance is exceptional, leaving us all spellbound. All the best for the endeavours ahead,” Modi said in a series of posts on X, formerly Twitter.
