Anil was challenged at the beginning of the race by Bipin Yadav of KES Jr College, but ran clear soon after the halfway mark clinching gold in 4 minutes, 33.06 seconds, with Bipin finishing a distant second clocking 5:08:00 secs and Mohd Bilala Molvi of St John Universal School winning bronze with a timing of 5:20.09 secs.“As I did not have a pair of shoes to train with, a senior at the SAI hostel here readily agreed to part with his practice shoes. This win has inspired me to do even better now at the upcoming state meet. I want to take up long distance running some day,” said Anil, who is participating in a district-level competition for the first time.
