DUBAI: Dubai witnessed a triumphant display of endurance and determination as senior IPS Officers Sanjeev Panda and Satyajit Naik from Odisha finished the recently- concluded Dubai Marathon 2024 in style.
The IPS officers were accompanied by OCS Officer Gangadhar Nayak and Manas and Ranjit duo from Bhubaneswar Cycling and Adventure Club (BCAC). All the five athletes from Odisha completed the challenging Dubai full marathon and won accolades.
Dubai Marathon, organised under the auspices of the Dubai Sports Council, takes place on the renowned super-flat course along Jumeirah Beach Road. The race is known for its benign weather conditions and global participation.
Satyajit Naik marked his debut in international full marathon (42.195Kms) at the Dubai Marathon 2024, adding another feather to his hat. This marked his third full marathon, having previously conquered the Mumbai full marathon twice.
The successful participation of the Indian players from Odisha not only adds to their personal milestones but also exemplifies the spirit of athleticism and excellence promoted by the Bhubaneswar Cycling and Adventure Club (BCAC).
The participation of BCAC members in a GCC country is a statement of growing cooperation and participation of Indian budding athletes in global events.
