Watch: 19-yr-old boy invited by MP govt after finishing barefoot 100m race in just 11 seconds

19-year-old Rameshwar Gurjar shot into fame after sprinting 100 metre-dash in just 11 seconds itself. The breathtaking dash of the ever-so-talented Indian sprint sensation has grabbed everyone’s eyeballs including the Indian government as it opted to nurture and strengthen the future of the promising young talent.

As per the news agency PTI, Madhya Pradesh government invited the 19-year-old youth (hailing from Shivpuri district) to state capital Bhopal.

Rameshwar Gurjar received the invitation from the state government after a video claimed that he finished a 100-metre dash in just 11 seconds. The viral video has been doing the rounds on social media ever since then.

The video was shared with the caption that reads: “If he gets better facilities and training, he can run 100 meters in 9 seconds”.

Acknowledging the spark of the youngster, MP Sports Minister Jitu Patwari extended his immense support by inviting him to Bhopal.

“If the child has the potential to perform Madhya Pradesh sports ministry will always support them,” the minister wrote in his reply.

A Public Relations Department official mentioned the same and said that the Sports Minister was greatly impressed with Gurjar. As per the report, Rameshwar passed Class 10 but failed to go to college owing to his family’s dull financial condition.

To ensure Rameshwar gets to enhance his skills at the highest level, the minister has also given his assurance to assist the poverty-stricken prospect, who promises to be the big future of India if his clocked time on the video turns out to be flawless.

As per the video claims, Gurjhar clocked 11 seconds in his solo 100-metre dash, which means he narrowly came close to equalling the world record set by sprint great Usain Bolt in the year 2009. The sprint legend stunned the world record with 9.58 seconds in the 2009 world championship final.
