Parul Chaudhary's Special Request For Government

Parul Chaudhary of ‘Eklauta Gaanv’ in Uttar Pradesh fulfilled her golden dream in the Asian Games 2022 being held in Hangzhou, China with a gold medal in the 5000m run and a silver medal in the 3000m steeplechase. In the 5000m run event, the chances of grabbing a bronze were looking grim but destiny had some other plans for the Indian athlete. At 4975m Parul took everyone’s breath away with her remarkable sprint towards the endline. 

When asked what it was that made her last 30m dash the most memorable one, she said, “At that moment I just thought that if I bag this gold, nothing can stop me from becoming a DSP.” 

Coming from a close-knit joint family, Parul’s victory is big for her family, friends and the nation, as this Asian Games marks Bharat’s entry in the 100 medal club. 

Recounting her days of struggle and preparations, Parul reminisces how she had been preparing for this gold win since her childhood. The athlete further shared how she walked 3 kilometres daily to board a local bus to go to practice, coached after school and sometimes even did all the household work.
