We scouted Nayana Kokare in 2019 during one of our village leagues. Running barefoot she was a shy 16 year old who would complete 100 mtrs with a modest time of around 14 secs. But she had never trained before nor had any good source of nutrition. Her attitude to learn, along with our hyperlocal driven approach of identifying and developing talent in the community - came together to make her the fastest 19 year old of India in 2022. We have 23 more athletes following the same trajectory.
Taking the Holistic Approach
Our vision is towards developing hyperlocal athletics ecosystem to sustainably produce world class talent in track and field. We are currently identifying and nurturing talent from socio-economically marginalised Siddi community of Uttra Kannada district, Karnataka - into India’s fastest sprinters.
Partnerships with best in the world
ALTIS is an elite training environment for athletes, and a global leader of education in sport performance.
