Gowda bags gold in Jamaican International Invitation meet
Ace Indian discus thrower Vikas Gowda continued with his fine form as he came up with an effort of 65.14m to win his event in the Jamaican International Invitation meet in Kingston on Sunday. Gowda, the reigning Commonwealth Games champion and silver winner in 2014 Asian Games, has thrown the discus over 65m three times in the last three weeks.

In Kingston, Chad Wright of Jamaica was second with a throw of 61.84m while Schuurmans of US was third with an effort of 61.62m.
