India's triple jumper Renjith Maheshwary crashed out of the London Olympics, failing to qualify for the finals with a 'No Mark' at the Olympic Stadium here Tuesday.


Renjith, India's sole male representative in the event, was shown the red flag in all three of his attempts as he each time over-stepped his take-off.

The Indian was the only contestant in the event not to register a jump.

Renjith, thereby, failed to make even a single mark and finished last in the event.

Benjamin Compaore of France topped the qualification list with a jump of 17.06 metres.

Mayookha Johny, India's sole woman triple jumper, too failed to qualify for the finals Friday. She finished a dismal 22nd overall with a best effort of 13.77 metres, which she got in her first attempt.
