Tokyo Paralympics: Sumit Antil not happy with result despite Gold medal and new World Record, says ‘It was not my best’: Breaking the world record three times on his way to gold in the Paralympics did not suffice for Sumit Antil as the Indian para javelin
thrower said it was not his best, vowing to better a performance that was incredible by any yardstick.

The wrestler-turned-javelin thrower clinched India’s second gold at the ongoing Paralympics here on Monday, shattering the men’s F64 category world record multiple times in a stunning Games debut performance.

On winning gold and setting a world record of 68.55 metres, he said, “This is my first Paralympics and I was a little nervous because the competitors are great.

“I was hoping for a 70-metre-plus throw, maybe I can do 75m. It was not my best, I am very happy to break the world record.”

This was not the first time he was making the javelin travel far.
