Coach tells Assam sprinter Amlan Borgohain

Amlan Borgohain, who produced a spectacular run at the National Open Athletics in Warangal in the 200m to win gold last year, is also making impressive strides in the 100m dash. The 23-year-old, who has made rapid progress since he started training at the Reliance Foundation Odisha High Performance Center (HPC) at Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar in 2019, took silver earlier this month at the 81st All India Inter-University Athletics Championship for Men in Mangalore in the 100m, with times of 10.58, 10, 55 and 10.50 seconds in his three races over the competition.

James Hillier, Head Coach at Reliance Foundation Odisha HPC, said he was pleased with his division’s performance, but explained that it was too early in the season for athletes to produce their best timing.
