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.”

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.”
