The 28-year-old from Meerut is the first javelin thrower among women to enter the Olympics and has been creating national records for the past seven years: Starting with 58.83m in 2014 and the recent one of 63.24m during Federation Cup in March this year. At Olympic Stadium on Tuesday, Annu who booked Tokyo tickets through the world rankings will be competing in Group A.
