CWG 2022: Naveen Congratulates Avinash Sable on Winning Silver in Men’s Steeplechase

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has congratulated Avinash Sable on winning silver medal in the men’s 3000m steeplechase at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.


Sable bettered his own national record by almost a second to win the silver medal in the men’s 3000m steeplechase at the 2022 Commonwealth Games on Saturday.

Sable clocked 8:11.20 to better the previous NR of 8:12.48, set at the Rabat Diamond League earlier this year. It was also India’s first-ever medal in steeplechase at the Commonwealth Games.

Sable’s feat was a historic one considering it was the first time since Victoria 1994 that the mighty Kenyans failed to sweep the podium in men’s 3000m steeplechase at the CWG.
