Helsinki:

Anju Bobby George is hoping to repeat her form at Helsinki when the World Athletics Championships get underway today. She is once again leading Indian hopes in the long jump with the qualifying round for her event scheduled for August 9. While she was the first Indian to win a medal at the World Championship, she hasn't had a great year so far. The other Indians to watch out for at the event are discus throwers Neelam Jaswant Singh and Vikas Gowda. Gowda's qualifying round is scheduled for later today.
