India won its third medal in the ongoing World Para Athletics Championships 2017 at London after discus-thrower Karamjyoti Dalal clinched a bronze medal in the Women's F55 category on Friday. 

Dalal managed to pull off a herculean effort to throw 19.02m thereby edging her Baharaini competitor Alomari Roba to a podium finish.

Dalal also achieved the personal best of the season. Dalal had a little bit of good fortune going her way as she jumped one place from her initial fourth after Chinese Yang Liwan's post-event disqualification resulted in Karamjyoti being deemed the bronze medallist.

Sundar Singh Gurjar had opened India's account on the medal tally by clinching Gold at the men's Javelin throw. Arup Kumar Saroha added another medal to India's kitty by clinching silver in the club throw event.
