India's athletics campaign began on a disappointing note with shot putter Om Prakash Karhana and triple jumper Mayookha Johny failing to advance to the final round after finishing 19th and 22nd, respectively in the qualifiers in the London Olympics here yesterday.

Both Om Prakash and Mayookha failed to rise to the occasion as they came up with below-par performances, much below their personal best, on the first day of the blue riband event. 

Om Prakash threw the 7.26kg iron ball to a distance 19.86m, which placed him 10th in Group B and 19th overall.
