The video of the athlete is going viral on social media. There may not have been anything official about the lap ran by the sprinter but with the only proof of his 11-second timing being the length of the video.
Earlier, Madhya Pradesh sports minister Jitu Patwari had reacted to the video by saying: “With proper training and gear, he can complete 100 meters in 9 seconds.” The minister had also invited Gurjar to state capital Bhopal.
