Sullia: As the saying goes, “Where there is a will, there is a way”, an elderly woman from Aletty village of Sullia, without having taken any form of training has achieved a milestone only with sheer determination and rigorous practice.

B H Vidya has secured one gold and three silver medals in 800, 400, 1500 and 3000 meters running race in the Masters Athletics Championships 2018, held at Jakarta, Indonesia.

The specialty is, she has not worn any sports shoe and has sprinted barefoot.

It is said that she was not allowed to run barefoot but had availed special permission.

She is married to a farmer Harish from Bangarakodi, Peraje village, Madikeri. The condition there is such that there is no proper electricity supply or street lights. The 1 km stretch to her house has no proper road facility.

The villagers have applauded her efforts of reaching the international level and winning medals. However, they say that the saddest part of all this is that even though she has achieved such a milestone but she lives amid such adverse conditions.
