Lalita Babar: A Brief Biography

India\'s long-distance runner Lalita Babar is the face of Indian athletics contingent in Rio Olympics 2016. Babar, who will be running in the 3000m steeplechase became the first Indian to reach the final of any track event at the World Athletics Championships. Only Inderjeet Singh (men’s shot put), Anju Bobby George (women’s long jump), and Vikas Gowda (men’s discus throw) have reached the finals of their event before her. The 27-year-old bagged a gold medal at the Asian Championships in Wuhan, China last year. The current national record-holder in the women\'s 3000m steeplechase is a three-time winner of the Mumbai Marathon. Her personal best stands at 9:27.09 seconds and she would certainly aim to win to a medal at Rio.
