At the championships, the steeplechaser Avinash Sable, the long jumper Murali Sreeshankar, and the hurdler Jyothi Yarraji will all compete.

Despite throwing 20.23 metres to win a gold, he hurt himself in the process. Tajinder already withdrew from the 2022 Championships in Eugene owing to a groyne injury, making this the second consecutive World Championship he will miss because of injury.
