Parvej Khan, a resident of Mewat, who had gone viral on Saturday for his showmanship during a race, won the gold medal in Florida by clocking 3:42.73 in the final. Parvej also clocked 1:46.80 to win the yellow metal at Men's 800m.
Khan, who won gold at the 2022 National Games in Gujarat, is already considered one of India’s top 1500 m runners. When he signed with the University of Florida last year, he became the first Indian runner to earn a scholarship for a college in the highly competitive Division 1 of the NCAA.
Khan's journey from the rural Indian district of Mewat to the international stage is an inspirational tale. With limited resources and facilities, his dedication and raw talent have propelled him to the pinnacle of his sport. But he isn't the first one to compete in the American Collegiate circuit, with Tejaswin Shankar, Mohinder Singh Gill and Vikas Gowda all winning gold at the NCAA championships in the high jump, triple jump and discus throw, respectively.
However, the youngster comes from very humble backgrounds. In an interview with Sportstar, Khan recalled his struggles and said, "I’m a boy from a village in Mewat. Back when I had started, if you had told me back then that one day I’d be studying in the USA, training and running along with Olympic medallists, I wouldn’t have believed you,” he says.
Khan hails from Chahalka, a village about 50 kilometres south of New Delhi in Haryana’s Mewat district. His father, Nafees Ali grows wheat.
Parvej Khan's story is an embodiment of perseverance and the power of dreams. He has not only captured the attention of the sporting world but has also ignited hope and inspiration for aspiring athletes across India.
