New Delhi,21 April: Balraj Panwar earned the distinction of securing India’s first Paris Games quota in rowing as he finished third to claim the bronze medal in the  single sculls (M1x) event at the Asian and Oceaninan Rowing Olympic Qualification Regatta, in Chungju,  Korea on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Panwar, who narrowly missed out on a bronze medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games last year, clocked 7:17.87 in the heats and 7:16.29 in the semi-finals to make the finals in Chunju.
