Bhubaneswar: The song “Hum Honge Kamyaab” was the source of inspiration for Olympian Anuradha Biswal as she sizzled the tracks across the globe.
“It was my anthem from which I drew inspiration before every competition,” Biswal, who holds the national record of 13.38 seconds for 100 metre hurdles set at the National Circuit meet held at Delhi in 2002, said at the SOA Deemed to be University on Wednesday.
Biswal spoke as the chief guest at the closing function of the month-long SOA Cup in which students of nine constituent institutions competed in 13 sporting disciplines. She also led the students in singing the song and exhorted them to excel in sports. “You can achieve anything if you have a fixed goal and determination to reach there,” she added.
SOA’s Vice-Chancellor in-charge Prof SC Si, Dean (Students Welfare) Prof JR Das, Sports Officer Sunita Barma and Junior Sports Officer Priyam Mallick also spoke on the occasion.
