Gold Medalist Annu Rani Wanted To Quit


NL Corresspondent

‘I thought if I was doing so bad, I would quit. But I told myself that I will not give up so soon and fight till the end.'

In an awe-inspiring display of determination and excellence, Indian athletes added another chapter to their legacy at the Asian Games in Hangzhou on Tuesday, October 3, 2023, winning six medals in track and field events.

Among the standout performances, Annu Rani's remarkable comeback saw her secure a gold in the javelin event.

Annu, 31, is the first Indian woman to win an Asian Games gold in the javelin event. Her season best effort of 62.92 metres at the fourth attempt not only secured her the gold medal but also served as a testament to her unwavering resilience.

Annu had been grappling with a string of lacklustre performances throughout the year, which had left her feeling despondent and under immense pressure, given the government's substantial investment in her training. In a display of true grit and determination, she summoned her best when it mattered most.
