Parul Chaudhary targets Asian Games medal and Lalita Babar’s 3000m steeplechase national record

New Delhi, Jun 2 (PTI) Two months of high-altitude training at Colorado Springs in the USA has done wonders for Indian long-distance runner Parul Chaudhary, who is aiming for a medal in the upcoming Asian Games in China as well as breaking Lalita Babar’s 3000m steeplechase national record.

The 28-year-old Chaudhary has been training at Colorado Springs — which is at an altitude of 1800m above sea level — along with star men’s 3000m steeplechaser Avinash Sable since March 20.

She set a national record of 15:10.35s in the 5000m race at the Track Festival in Walnut, California, on May 6 before clocking her personal best of 9:29.51s in her pet event of 3000m steeplechase at the USATF Los Angeles Grand Prix on May 26.

“I have benefitted immensely from the high-altitude training at Colorado Springs. Last year, I was here (Colorado Springs) for just 25 days, but this time, it has been two months now here, doing high-altitude training,” Chaudhary told
