Javelin thrower Davinder Singh Kang, who was cleared of doping charges by the Athletics Integrity Unit of the IAAF, made a dramatic return to the Indian team as he was named among 43 athletes for the Asian Championships starting in Doha on April 21.

Kang, who has a personal best of 82.16m, did not touch the qualifying standard of 80.75m set by the AFI in any of the two events he took part this season but has been named in the team in the last minute.

In women’s 4x400m realy, Prachi was included in the team in place of Jisna Mathew.

As expected, the women’s 100m relay team of Dutee Chand, Hina, Archana Suseendran and K. Ranga made it to the team after the quartet clocked 44.12s in the trials as against the AFI qualifying standard of 44.50s.
