India's Krishna Poonia on Friday qualified for the women's discus throw final round in London Olympics with an impressive effort in the qualification round on the first day of track and field events in London.

Poonia, who is hoping to win a medal, began with a foul throw but regained her composure to hurl the one-kg discus to 63.54m in the Group A competition at the showpiece Olympic Stadium.

Those who touched the qualification mark of 63.00m or the best 12 make it to the final round.
