2021 Thailand Open Athletics Parinya
Chuaimaroeng misses out on Olympics with 14.08m in Triple Jump
23-year-old SEA Games Parinya Chuaimaroeng of Thailand leaped 14.08m at the Thailand National Championships yesterday, close to the 14.32m qualifying standard for the Olympics.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as the Women’s Triple Jump had 32 slots and 32 athletes were all over 14.32m leaving no space for wild cards or universal rule entries. As a result, Chuameroing for her efforts was ranked 42nd in the event for the year.
The performance was the season’s best improvement on Parinya Chuaimaroeng 13.98m set at Doha Diamond League. Parinya Chuaimaroeng will now focus her efforts on defending her Triple Jump title from 2019; her leaps improved the 13.75m she registered at New Clark.
For Thailand, only Kieran Tuntivate has qualified in Men’s 10,000m. This gives Thailand one eligibility spot, which went to Subenrat Insaeng in the Discus, ranked 29th out of 32 in the Rankings based on Road to Tokyo Points.
Indonesia and Malaysia opted to give their women wild card spots to sprinters Alvin Tehupiroy and Nabila in the Womens 100m.
