With 'giant' Usain Bolt gone, heir-apparent Yohan Blake and World 100m and 200m stalwart of Jamaica who landed in India earlier this week caught up with veteran actor and producer, Anil Kapoor at his residence yesterday.
The health-conscious duo animatedly conversed on their fitness goals and aspirations while sprinting served as a common ground of discussion. Later they were seen channelling their inner fitness demi-gods as they went sprinting at Jamnabai Narsee School Grounds.
At the age of 62, if there's anyone who motivates us towards fitness, it has got to be Anil Kapoor. Having contributed around 4 decades of his life to Bollywood, he is one of the fittest actors in the industry. A self-confessed sprint connoisseur, he is known to also engage in yoga and weight training, keeping his workouts diverse and relevant. Known for his unparallel commitment to health & fitness and acting alike, his philosophy revolves around starting young to reap benefits in the long run. Like they say Rome wasn't built in a day, nor is a healthy lifestyle!
The youngest ever sprinter till date whom Bolt has dubbed 'The Beast,' is on a promotional spree to create awareness towards road safety in India where around 1,50,000 people are killed and more than 4,50,000 people are critically injured in road accidents every year.
Blake who is preparing for the 2020 Tokyo Games, has collaborated with the Road Safety World Series, a T20 cricket event to be played between legends of India, Australia, South Africa, West Indies and Sri Lanka in February 2020 in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Pune. While former cricket legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Jonty Rhodes, Muttiah Muralitharan, Brett Lee and Virender Sehwag are among the 110 cricketers to have committed to playing in the tournament - created to raise awareness about road safety - Blake has been brought on board as the 'Road Safety Champion' of the West Indies Legends team while Sachin Tendulkar is the Brand Ambassador of the series and Sunil Gavaskar is the Commissioner of the series.
