CHENNAI:  Tamil Nadu athletes swept the podium places in the men’s triple jump on the third and final day of the inaugural U-23 National Athletics Championships in New Delhi on Wednesday. The top spot was clinched by 21-year-old Gailey Venister, who achieved a distance of 16.20m. The second and third spots went to Praveen Chithravel and E Aravinth, with distances of 16.03m and 15.98m respectively. 

Chithravel had won gold at the National Open Athletics Championships in Warangal just a couple of weeks ago with a personal best of 16.88m, but the 2018 Youth Olympics bronze medallist was well below his best on Wednesday.
