In this nnis video, Rushida said: “It is all about training and dedication and of course you need to get everything perfect to get the world record. First get good coaching and have that talent to perform at that level.” He further added that one needed to be in good place of training. He gives his own example, where he says that he trains above 2300 metres above sea level. This means that the Indian athletes need not train in places such as Delhi, but places located at high altitude.
The Indian athletes may not have all the facilities that are required for a top sprint athlete, but the demands for a long distance runner are less compared to sprint athletes. Added Rushida, “ Kenyan athletes train naturally that is what is really good about Kenyans. Kenyans are not doing well in sprinting, because sprinting needs modern facility, good tracks and gym, but we do not have such things.” He further stated that long distance running just requires going on the road and training, doing physical exercise etc. So, for a nation like India, long distance running seems to be the right way forward.
