Triple jumper Renjith Maheshwari, sprinter Dharambir Singh, and Jinson Johnson became the latest Indian athletes to qualify for the Rio Olympics. Adidas Alex Ovechkin Jersey . Maheswari and Dharambir set new national records in their respective events on the concluding day of the Grand Prix in Bengaluru on Monday, while middle distance runner Johnson qualified for the mens 800m event after clocking 1:45.98.With 38 (20 men + 18 women)?athletes qualifying till July 11, the cut-off date for entry, this will be the countrys largest-ever track and field Olympic contingent.Maheshwari, who will be making his third straight Olympic appearance, made the Rio cut with a leap of 16.93m in his third attempt, the qualifying norm being 16.85m. Egged on by a raucous bunch of spectators, he took his performance several notches higher, with a jump of 17.30 in his final attempt to shatter the existing national record of 17.17 set by Arpinder Singh at the 2014 National Inter-State meet in Lucknow. This, incidentally, is the first time in six years that Renjith has breached the 17m mark. His last 17m showing being at the Commonwealth Games 2010 with a leap of 17.07.Though I was under pressure, I was confident of qualifying for the Olympics. I havent been participating in too many competitions and there were minor flaws in my technique which I have been working on. In the run-up to the Olympics, I think I need to train abroad, said Renjith, who recovered from a lower abdomen injury only two weeks before the Inter-State meet earlier this month in Hyderabad.His previous two Olympic performances, however, have been far from encouraging, with three consecutive fouls at the London Games and a 35th place finish in Beijing in 2008.Dharambir, clocked 20.45s, bettering the national record of 20.66s to become the first Indian athlete since Perumal Subramaniam at the 1980 Moscow Olympics to qualify for the mens 200m event. The qualification norm for the event was set at 20.50s. Dharambir was slapped with a two-year suspension for evading a dope test in 2012.Putting up a creditable show, the second-best by an Indian male athlete since Sri Ram Singhs 1:45.77 show in the 800m at the Montreal Olympics in 1976, Jinson said he came within touching distance of qualifying at the inter-state meet in Hyderabad with a timing of 1:46.43 earlier this month. The Olympic qualifying standard for the event is set at 1:46.00. A steady but notable improvement in his performance over the last two years - 1:47.80 in 2014 and 1:47.56 in 2015 - also paid off.I was mindful of Srirams show and glad that I could dip below 1:46 today. The weather and track also helped, said Jinson, who won all three legs of the Asian Grand Prix in Thailand last year. The last Indian athlete to qualify for the mens 800 event was Charles Borromeo at the Moscow Olympics in 1984.Promising female long jumper V Neena leaped 6.66m, falling short of the Olympic qualifying standard of 6.70m by four cms. There was heartbreak in store for the womens 4x100 relay quartet anchored by Dutee Chand who failed to make the cut, finding themselves outside the top 16 teams at 20th position.

Shep Garner scored four points during a 6-0 spurt that pulled the Nittany Lions within five with 1:50 left but Jeter answered with a 3-pointer and they would get no closer.Sheldon is a great team guy.He probably hit the biggest shot of the game.
