It all started when was 5 years old. My dad pushed me to learn swimming to overcome the fear of water. I started loving water and I started my professional training from then on. Represented and achieved many medals at the state and national level for swimming. Along with swimming, I started representing the state for Athletics (100m & 200m) and for basketball and won many national medals in both. All this happened till my school days. Post school, like a typical Indian student, pursued engineering and was kept away from sports for almost 15 years. After marriage and a kid, I was again pulled into Triathlon just to reduce my weight. But my passion took over and with support from my family, I took Triathlon as my profession and started competing in the international arena.

Up Close, and Personal

To me, sport is…

life. Without sports, I would not have got all the support and happiness in my life.

The toughest race of my life was…

Ironman Cairns will be my toughest race so far, as it had the roughest sea. Swimming usually is my forte, by I was afraid to swim and it eventually took a beat up on my cycle and run. But I thoroughly enjoyed the entire race.

The most memorable moment of my sporting career so far…

The most memorable moment of my career is to carry the Indian flag and run on the red carpet. From my childhood, I used to dream of representing India and carry the flag high. When that happened in my first race in Barcelona, I broke down in happiness.

My dream starting line is…

the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Nice. The entire cycle course has a 40 Km uphill and a 40KM downhill. I cherished this ride as it tested my mettle to the core. I would definitely race on the same course once again to enjoy it.

I nourish my soul with…

positivity and the passion to excel in my career.
