Tajinderpal's throw would have given him
sixth place in the Rio final.
In the last five Olympics, the lowest mark for a bronze medal is 20.84m, at Athens 2004.
Tajinderpal not only has to breach 21m, but nudge towards the 22m mark to hang in with the big boys of the sport such as Ryan Crouser, Joe Kovacs and Tom Walsh.
Tajinderpal’s personal coach, M.S. Dhillon, believes he can gain 1m more in a year. What’s more, Dhillon doesn’t put 22m beyond his ward’s reach.
