Tejaswin could not cross the 2.25m mark in his licking attempts. This was the reason why he missed out on the gold. If he had touched the figure of 2.25 meters, then the color of the medal could have been golden. Donald Thomas of Bahamas also failed in his 2.25m effort and Tejaswin won the bronze medal for India. Thomas decided not to take the last jump of 2.28 metres. He finished sixth in the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
