Indian Race walker Irfan K.T Qualified for the Summer Games 2020 Tokyo Olympics

But in the last decade or so, especially after Abhinav Bindra’s Gold medal, efforts have been made to improve the nation’s performance in one of the biggest sporting events in the world.

Indian athletes bagged three medals in 2008, record six in 2012 but came down to just two in Rio.

National record holder Irfan K.T became the first Indian from athletics to qualify for the next year’s Olympics while finishing fourth in the 20 km event of the Asian Race-Walking Championships in Nomi, Japan.

Seven years ago, the race-walker finished 10th in the 20km event at London Olympics with a national record of 1.20.21.

He missed the bus to Rio Olympics in 2016 and last year, the Malappuram athlete was sent back from the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast for allegedly breaching the ‘no-needle policy’ against doping.
