Athlete of Madras – Daisy Victor

You might have heard about Daisy Victor. This is what she says about her training.

“I used to run around my school compound. Now, I run everyday, rain or shine,” she says with cheer. Her daily schedule includes an hour of running, jogging for 25 minutes, warming-up exercises, workouts, running around the track curves and practising for triple jumps

With 60 medals including 33 golds in International Championships, 76 gold medals in 24 National Masters Championships and 124 golds in 38 State-level meets, she attributes her victory to God.

So what’s new?

Well Mrs. Daisy Victor is a 74 year old Grandmother.

Read about her some time back in The Hindu. She trains in the Madhavaram ground near her house, the news article says. Do any one of you live near that area and can you give us any additional info on this inspiring athlete?
