His time of 21.57 seconds this evening is his personal best over the distance, improving on the 21.60 he clocked in a fast semi final heats in the All India Inter University Athletics Championships in Moodbidri in November last. He is aware that becoming the flag bearer of sprinting entails a great responsibility and he is prepared to shoulder.
Future plans
I might let go 100m tracks and embraces the 200-400 combination in the time ahead. Making further improvements in my 100m time will entail a lot of time and hard work.

YMCA at Nandanam in Chennai is the place where he get his training. There are very less times when he go to Nehru Stadium in the southern megapolis, where synthetic track are there. But the good thing is that now indian selectors have seen him.

We wish him all the best in life.
