London, Jul 17 (PTI) India's Amit Kumar Saroha clinched a silver in men's club throw F51 competition in World Para Athletics Championships here today.

Saroha's best throw of 30.25m, which came in his third attempt, fetched him a silver medal. In the process, the para-athlete from Haryana set a new Asian record in this event.
