India's Arvind ended seventh in the men's shot put F35 event of the Paralympics here on Thursday.

Making his debut at the Games, the 28-year-old's best effort was a 13.48m throw in the eight-strong field.

The gold medal in this event went to Uzbekistan's Khusniddin Norbekov, who produced a season's best effort of 16.13m.

Argentina's Emanuel Urra claimed the silver with a 15.90m throw, while the bronze went to China's Fu Xinhan (15.41m, season's best).

In F35 category of this classification, athletes compete in standing position.

Arvind had lost use of his left leg after he was hit on his head by a ball as a child leading to nerve damage.
