She Had Been Practising For The Journey For More Than A Year
Sai had taken interest in cycling and swimming at the little age of just six years. Backed by her father, Sai had begun practising for her Kashmir to Kanyakumari expedition during the lockdown when she used to cover around 50 kilometres daily. After a practice period of more than a year, she finally took up the journey with her father. Within Maharashtra, Sai had completed many inter-city cycling trips. In swimming too, she had set many records.
Her Parents Are Proud Of Her Achievements
Sai studies in Shri Ma Vidyalaya in Thane. She manages her practises and education side by side. According to a Hindustan Times report, her father, who takes a lot of pride in her achievements, has said that she is planning to travel from East India to West India next and also wants to cycle from India to Russia. Her mother makes sure that she remains fit by taking proper care of her diet. Earlier, a 6-Year-Old Boy From Chennai Had Created A World Record For Cycling By Covering Over 100 Km Non-Stop.
