Due to courage and confidence, Kusum Thakur has also achieved the distinction of becoming the first sprinter of the hill state “Himachal”.

21-year-old Kusum Thakur of Baila Panchayat of Pandoh in Mandi district has also implemented in real life the proverb in which it is said that wings do not help, courage should have life.

Kusum Thakur, a second year B.A. student at Vallabh College of Mandi, said, she started running with her brother Harish in the fourth class. At the age of 19, life turned dark during Covid when both lungs were filled with water. Doctors asked to stop running immediately. Didn’t go on track for two years. When I stepped on the track in December 2022, my feet were trembling, there was a fear in my mind, but my courage remained intact.

Kusum said that she practices for 6 to 7 hours daily. Along with Mandi, she also practices in Dharamshala. However, the state government should take concrete steps to encourage the “daughter” who has written extraordinary success stories.
