Rayong (Thailand), Dec 9 (MNN) India’s Tokyo Olympian Arjun Lal Jat and partner Ravi topped preliminary round of men’s double sculls event and made it to the final in Asian Rowing Championships 2021 here on Thursday.

The duo’s timing of 7.30.312 helped them advance to the finals of the continental meet at the Royal Thai Navy Rowing Centre.

Uzbekistan’s Davrjon Davronov and Abdullo Mukhammadiev finished second with a time of 7.35.717, followed closely by China’s Qing Li and Lutong Zhang, who touched the finish line in 7.35.990.

Arjun Lal Jat was paired with Arvind Singh at the last edition of the Asian Rowing Championship in 2019 where they won silver in the men’s lightweight double sculls.

The two had also finished 11th overall in the same event at the Tokyo Olympics – the best-ever performance by Indian rowers at the Summer Games.

The two, however, couldn’t make the weight cut for the men’s lightweight double sculls for the meet in Thailand. Arvind Singh will be competing in the lightweight single sculls on December 10.

Meanwhile, Parminder Singh, the indoor rowing Asian champion, finished last in the preliminary round of the men’s single sculls. He ended fifth with a timing of 9.14.797 – more than 53 seconds slower than the leader Kholmurzaev Shakhboz of Uzbekistan.

Indian rowers will be competing in five more events at the continental championship on Friday.
