On Sunday at the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest, away from the clamour of Neeraj Chopra’s gold, the Indian men’s 4x400m relay squad made history of their own. In addition to Neeraj’s global championship, their fifth-place performance in the men’s relay final is the greatest result India has ever achieved in a relay competition at the Worlds.

In the men’s 4x400m relay finals at the 2023 World Athletics Championships, the Indian men’s quartet of Muhammad Anas Yahiya, Amoj Jacob, Muhammad Ajmal Variyathodi, and Rajesh Ramesh ran a respectable race to place fifth with a time of 2:59.92. With a timing of 2:57.31, the USA claimed the gold medal.

The men’s relay team made it to the World Championship final as the first Indian team ever.

They beat Japan’s previous Asian record during the qualification round by clocking 2:59.05 to get to their first final. The sweetest win of their careers for the four sprinters is their fifth-place finish on the international stage.
