Muhammad Hanan, a mere 17-year-old young runner from India V (Hanan V) came into the limelight when he got a place in the World Atheltics ranking this month. He participated in the South Zone Junior Athletics Championships at Calicut University on 26 February this year with borrowed shoes and won the gold medal in the men’s 110 meter hurdle, taking a time of 13.80 seconds. According to the recently released world rankings, this timing is the third best in the world. It is a big thing for Abhan to get this position and he is happy about it too.
But another surprising thing is that Abhan has no synthetic track to train. He trains on the pavement or in Biellen near his home. Residents of Velachilil village in Tirur, Kerala, go to train on the beach many times. Talking to Indian Express.com, he said that he still cannot believe his success. He said, “Ramadan is going on right now. So I get more time to sleep. I am dreaming of playing in the Olympics. I am still not convinced, I am not able to believe that I am in the top three in the world rankings. “
Achievement is not small
Although it is the season-ending rankings, it is a big thing for an Indian player to become the world’s number-3, said Indian-going athlete Statist Ram Muralikrishnan, “It’s not a small thing for Anan. If he maintains his ranking or improves it further, it will be a big deal for him. The days of the season have started but no one can take away from them the credit of becoming the number 3 player in the world, even if it is for a short period of time.
Elder brother gave training
Hannan’s father Karim is a driver in Abu Dhabi and his mother Nur Jahan handles the household work. Hanan has been trained by his elder brother Harshad. These people are three byes. Hannan and his brother Muhammad Ashiq play in the 400 meter hurdle and have won medals in state level competitions. Harshad said, “I hope the abuses will go ahead and bring Olympic medals for India. His ranking at this time, I sincerely hope that he will get the Olympic podium, if he is shown the right direction and he is supported. ”
Job in hand
In January, he participated in the National Junior Meet held in Guwahati where he became the winner. The 12th student of Deodhar Government Higher Secondary School has received a job offer from the Madras Regimental Center, Wellington and will be posted as Havildar after passing the state board exam. Exams, however, have been postponed due to COVID.
He said, “Having a job with MRC at the age of 18 will help me in my athletics career. I hope that I will be able to do well with the support that I am getting from my brother, as well as the support I am getting from my personal physician Dr. Reguprasad and the Dheerkayush Fitness Center. ”
