India’s triple jumper Renjith Maheshwary crashed out of the London Olympics, failing to qualify for the finals with a ‘No Mark’ at the Olympic Stadium here Tuesday.
Renjith, India’s sole male representative in the event, was shown the red flag in all three of his attempts as he each time over-stepped his take-off.
The Indian was the only contestant in the event not to register a jump.
