The 27-year-old triple jumper Abdulla Aboobacker won a gold medal for India in the Asian Athletics Championships 2023 in Bangkok, Thailand.

In the men’s triple jump event, the Commonwealth Games 2022 silver medalist Aboobacker produced the best jump with 16.92m to win a gold medal. Aboobacker managed that jump in his fourth attempt of that final event, which was the fourth-best jump in his career.

According to ESPN, the gold-medalist Aboobacker commented, "Because of rain, the (jumping) board was moving. Still, I was confident of doing well and I was able to do that finally."
