P T Usha
Fast tracking memory
The Usha Expo at Thiruvananthapuram traces P T Ushas evolution from a strapping bare foot runner on the sandy Arabian coat in Malabar to her evolution as the first Indian female athlete, who lost out on her place in Olympic history by a nano second. Usha Ex 2013 was conceived to show case her achievements over a glittering career culminating in that moment of despair, which opened a new chapter in Indian sports. She hopes to instil a fresh enthusiasm in the next generation that loves sports.
