Bangladesh completes Tokyo Olympics mission; Jahir finishes last in 400-m heats

Bangladesh completed their Tokyo Olympics' 2020 mission one week before the meet ends with athlete Jahir Rayhan competing in the country's last event of men's 400-meter run heats at the Olympics Stadium in Tokyo Sunday.

Jahir competed in the event's heats number-3 and finished 8th and last among the eight athletes of USA, Brazil, Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Slovenia and Congo to eliminate from the" greatest show on earth.”

Jahir Rayhan, who was very much keen to display his best performance in his favourite 400-meter run in Bangladesh's last event of the Tokyo Olympics, eat his word as he took 48.29 seconds against his best timing of 47.34 seconds.

In the heats number-3, M Cherry of USA finished top with a timing of 44.82 seconds, followed by J Jones of Barbados (45.04 ), C Taylor of Jamaica (45.20 ), D St Hillaire of Triniad and Tobago (45.41), L Janezic of Slovenia (45.44), GA Afoumba  of Congo (46.03), L Carvalho of Brazil (46.12) and Jahir Rayhan (48.29).

In the event's overall ranking, Jahir was placed 44th among the 48 competitors.

Jahir was the 3rd Bangladeshi athlete to compete in 400-meter run in the Olympics after 29 years after the participation of Mehdi Hasan in the Bercelona Olympics'1992 and Milzer Hossain in the Seoul Olympics in 1988.

Earlier on last Friday, five Bangladeshi athletes out of  six--archer Ruman Shana, Diya Siddique, shooter Abdullah Hel Baki swimmers Ariful Islam and Junaina Ahmed-- completed their Tokyo Olympics assignments. 

Except shooter Baki and athlete Jahir Rayhan, all the Bangladeshi athletes performed their best show in the mega games.
