Sprinting – It’s not just a sport, it’s passion!
avatar

By | March 28, 2019|Sports club|

Growing up in a fast-moving city like Mumbai always kept me on my toes. I have been an athlete in school and college but post my graduation, the only sprints I did were to catch the local train to the office.
