The athlete expressed his gratitude for the warm support he receives from Indians around the world and in Qatar, stating that it is a “privilege to have such dedicated fans.”

Meanwhile, Tentoglou, the Olympic, world indoor and outdoor, and European indoor and outdoor long jump champion, will be making his debut at the Seashore Group Doha Meeting.
