Rawat is aiming to better his own mark at Mumbai Marathon

Nitendra Singh Rawat said today he was aiming to better his own mark of 2016 when going one-on-one against Gopi Thonakal, who became the first ever male from the country to win the Asian championship title last November in China. "I want to create my own new course record. I have been training in Ooty, at a height of 2300 metres, for the last one month and am targeting the 2 hours, 13 minutes mark," said Rawat who clocked an impressive 2:15:18 when winning the marathon at the last SAF Games.
