hardest to walk
Nirmala Patil told that she will participate in walking and running in Kuala Lumpur. Walking is the most difficult. First the heel and then the toe have to be placed. If you move normally then you are out. Therefore its practice is also important. Timing for 5Km walk in Midnapore was 35 minutes. At the same time, the time taken for 10Km race was 45 minutes.
Got job through sports quota, then could play only for two years
Born on 5 April 1973 in Khedi, a small village in Balaghat district, Nirmala joined the skill directorate in Jabalpur on 9 November 1998. After this she could play only for two years.
