India's Davinder Singh finished 12th in the final of the men's javelin at the World Athletics Championships in London on Saturday.

While it was Chopra, a junior World Champion, who was touted as Indias biggest hope, it ended up being Kang who came out from nowhere to attain the qualifying mark of 83m with his third and final throw that cleared a distance of 84.22m.

Kang has become the only Indian player to qualify in the men's javelin throw final round in any world championship. However, his participation was under doubt after NADA found traces of marijuana in his Indian Grand Prix Delhi leg sample.

The next key data on focus will be tomorrow's CPI figures which should shed more light on the path of the United States inflation. The S&P 500 dropped 1.4% to 2438.21, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 204.69 points, or 0.9%, to 21,844.01.

Chopra has come here without a coach but he sought to dwell on the positives, saying, "I have to do it with what I have. I really believe I can grab that medal", Kang told The Indian Express after his latest achievement.

He fouled his second attempt before clearing only 80.54m in his third and final throw to finish seventh in his group and 15th overall. "It was a bit hard in the first couple of days but now I have fully acclimatised to the conditions and I am 100 per cent ready", Chopra told PTI.

"It (injury) will be all right after a day's rest".

Others weighing in included Vice President Mike Pence, who is heading Sunday on a six-day trip through Central and South America. Trump is considered to have launched his political career by arguing that President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S .

"The right shoulder injury I was carrying into the tournament was too much for me to bear today and because of that I could not do well", Singh said.

If both go through the qualifying round, it will be a rare occasion when two Indians will make it to the final round of an event in the world championships.

Kang will now aim to clinch a medal for the country when he, along with 12 other throwers, compete in the final round on August 12.
