New Delhi: Nisar Ahmed, a 15- year old sprinter had broken two National records in 100m and 200m Race.
The young sportsman has been battling poverty. Son of daily wage earners, Nisar, his elder sister and parents live in a tiny 10×10 feet room near railway tracks at Azadpur’s Bada Bagh slums in Delhi.
Nisar Ahmed completed 100 meters in 10.85 seconds, and 200 meters in 21.73 seconds.
Nisar had broken the under-16 100 m records that was set by M S Arun in 2013 by 0.01s. He was even 0.3s faster than Chandan Bauri in 200m, who had set the mark in the same year.
His father Mohammed Haq says that “This is where we live and we still harbour the dream of seeing our son make it big in athletics. It’s been over one-and-a-half years since I borrowed Rs 28,000 for my son’s athletics career. It was to buy spikes, sports gear and for his diet. I haven’t been able to repay it.”
His father, Mohammad Haq, pedals rickshaws and mother, Shafikunisha, washes utensils in people’s houses for a living. Despite struggling to make ends meet, they manage every possible extend to help their son.
He further added that “He is very dedicated and hardworking. The amount of effort he puts into everything is something even I can’t do.”
Siasat daily appeals readers to help Nisar Ahmed achieve his ambitions so that in future he brings laurels to India.
