Here Are The Top 5 Fastest Runners In India

1. Amlan Borgohain

The 24-year-old made a big entrance after giving a really strong performance. To his credit, he holds the national records for both the men's 100- and 200-meter sprints, making him the fastest sprinter in Indian history. Amlan, an Assamese native, was an avid football fan and it was his first love. In several tournaments, he even represented his school. However, persistent injuries forced him to postpone his football career. At that point, he made the decision to switch from football to athletics. Amalan broke the national 100m record at the All India Inter Railways Athletics Championship on August 29, 2022. With a time of 10.25 seconds, he beat Amiya Kumar Mallick's previous record. Amlan, who is unquestionably among the fastest runners in India, set a previous record of 10.34 seconds. In addition, he owns the national record for the 200 meters, which he set at the Federation Cup in 20.52 seconds.

2. Amiya Kumar Mallick

Amiya Kumar Mallick is the next fastest Indian runner on the list. Mallick had the 100-meter national record at 10.26 seconds before Amlan. He has recorded this in the Federation Cup semifinals in April of 2016. In addition, he has a long list of accomplishments. In the 100-meter competition at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Colombo, Sri Lanka, he had taken home a silver medal. He has frequently given the famous Glen Mils credit for being his trainer and coach.

3. Gurindervir Singh

The fastest Indian runner on the list is Gurindervir Singh as well. He possesses the U-20 National Record to his name. In the 100-meter event, he beat the previous record set by Keralan athlete Augustine Yeshudas with a time of 10.47 seconds. The young man from Punjab has demonstrated amazing development and promise. He was hailed as the upcoming star of the racing world. In 2021, Gurindervir came dangerously close to shattering the national record for the 100 meters. With a time of 10.27 seconds, he had managed to win the 60th National Inter State Athletics Competition, almost missing the mark by a mere 0.02 seconds.

4. Rachita Panda

Another notable name on the list of the fastest Indian runners is Rachita Mistry. For a total of thirteen years, she held the national record time in the women's 100-meter event—an incredible accomplishment in and of itself. At the 2000 National Circuit Meet, which took place in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, Rachita set a time of 11.38 seconds. She quickly broke this record in Bangalore, clocking in at 11.26 seconds.

5. Dutee Chand

There is no need to introduce Dutee Chand. She was the longest-standing female running circuit champion. She is the first Indian to take home the gold in a major international 100-meter race. In a similar vein, she has earned a great deal of recognition and success. The current women's 100-meter champion set a new personal best at the Indian Grand Prix, clocking in at an astounding 11.17 seconds. She beat her previous best of 11.22 seconds with this.
