Ath­let­ics has taken me to dif­fer­ent places

Sportstar - - 40 SUPERSTARS -

Ath­let­ics has given me fame, recog­ni­tion and job. I am now a GM with the Food Cor­po­ra­tion of In­dia, Chen­nai. More­over, it has taken me to dif­fer­ent places.

My pho­to­graph ap­peared first in the mag­a­zine af­ter I won the ■00m race in the Na­tional ju­nior (un­der­16) ath­let­ics cham­pi­onship in Ben­galuru. I was in Class IX then. The mag­a­zine has pub­lished lovely pho­tos of mine on many oc­ca­sions — in the Na­tional cham­pi­onships, Asian Games, South Asian Games and Olympics. It has sent re­porters for ma­jor ath­let­ics events and has cov­ered the sport re­ally well.
