Indian athletes continue to perform well at the Asian Athletics Championships. On Saturday, Sudha Singh performed brilliantly while capturing the gold medal at the 3,000-meter Steeplechase event of women in the championship. Sudha secured this distance in nine minutes and 59.47 seconds.
Sudha, who was battling injuries and illness after the Rio Olympics-2013, was very happy after her performance. After getting the gold medal, he said, “After the Olympics, I was away from the game for five months. Even when I started exercising, I was not able to do well. In December I participated in the National Camp and gradually caught the speed ‘.
Sudha has won the silver medal in the same championship in the year 2009, 2011 and 2013.
Though Sudha also questioned the level of the championship and said, “The top players in Asia have not come to this championship, so the level here was a little lower than I thought”.
The Olympian said, “I have taken part in two Olympics and want to achieve something. I want to win a medal internationally. My goal was to do well in the Asian Championship. Now I want to do well in the next World Championship to be held in the next month. ”
