The quartet of Dharun, Mohammad Anas, Kunhu Muhammed and Arokia Rajiv, rewrote the national record of 3:02:17 set by them four weeks earlier in Turkey by clocking 3:00:91.

Dharun studied B. A. at the Alva's College of Arts in Moodabidri, Karnataka. He represented Tamil Nadu at Kho Kho and then switched to tracks in tenth grade. His father's early demise saw his mother taking up the responsibility of running the household. It became tough for his mother to run the family so they received financial support from their relatives. This big loss didn’t stop him from chasing his dreams. He used to train for hours. His rigorous training included hours of running, without proper sleep, and other endurance tests. He was so focused and true to his training that he didn’t even make time to go home. There was one international event after another for him over the last year. They went on exposure trips with a hope to crack the qualifying code to get into the Olympics when there were no events. His training and hard work paid off when he got the ticket to Rio Olympics 2016. However, the team couldn’t make it to the finals but if they continue their upward trend then their Olympic medals are not far away.
