Sharvari Parulekar, a student of K J Somaiya Science and Commerce, represented Maharashtra at the 34th National Junior Athletics Championship. She bagged a silver medal with a jump of 11.99 meters in the Triple Jump event.
Sharvari’s main events are Long Jump, Triple Jump, 100M Hurdles and Heptathlon. She was selected to represent Maharashtra after her amazing performance at the State level meet at Satara.
She has also won the Gold medal at the Khelo India Youth Games in Pune.
Hearty congratulations to her and her support system. We wish her continued success.
Sharvari joined athletics at the age of 7 when she was in the 2nd standard. Her love for playing outdoor games led her into the sport. With the support of her parents, school teachers and friends she successfully faced the challenge of balancing academics and sports.
Her success is a result of diligent and committed training. Each day she trains for four hours in good sprint workouts followed by some strength and speed endurance workout. A focus on body balance, agility and functional training gets her prepared for the competition. Access to a synthetic athletic track at Somaiya Vidyavihar and guidance from her coaches has added to her training.
Besides continuing in her athletics, Sharvari plans to study Physiotherapy or Psychology in the future.
