In the following month, he won the silver medal at the 2017 Asian Athletics Championships in Bhubaneswar with a throw of 19.77m, missing out on the gold medal by 0.03m.

On 25 August 2018, Toor won gold at the 2018 Asian Games with a 20.75m throw, breaking the Games record and the national record.

Toor qualified for the 2020 Summer Olympics by registering a throw of 21.49m at the Indian Grand Prix IV in June 2021, clearing the 21.10m entry standard. This throw also rewrote the national and Asian records. Competing with a heavily-bandaged shoulder at the Olympics, Toor registered only one legal throw of 19.99m in qualifying and failed to reach the final round.
