Studies proved a tough proposition for Mohan right from early age. But when it came to play and athletics in particular, this Chennai youngster made enough strides to win all round recognition, the best being his qualification for the Olympics, a dream happening.


Even as an U-14 he used to do the 400 m in about 53 sec.By the time he was in college, he had made it sub-49 sec. At the A L Mudaliar meet in Chennai in 2014 he bagged a double – 200 and 400 mts_ and earned the honour of being the best male athlete.


That put him in the national spotlight. The national Games in Kerala added lustre to his prowess. At the Federation cup in New Delhi in April this year, Mohan came into the top eight in the 400m got him into the group that was sent to Poland for training.


His speed improved through the intense training there. Currenly the Indian 4 x 400m relay squad has the reputation of being among the best in the world and Mohan is part of this.
