Their coach Swaran Singh said Chanveer had made a new national-level record. “Earlier, the record in the event was of 24.78 seconds,” he said.
Chanveer’s father stays in Italy. Life has not been too easy for her as she, along with her mother, is staying with her relatives.
Now, she is going to Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala for a national-level camp that will be held for those players who had won medals in the Khelo India games.
“Those who have performed well in the Khelo India games have been called to the camp and she is now aiming to play for the country in world championships,” Swaran said.
The coach said Principal of the school Bikram Singh Saini had been helping them a lot. “He is the one that provide us everything whatever we ask for,” the coach said.
