Name: Meyyapan Manikam
Here my story goes:
"I'm an auditor by profession. I started running at the age of 14. Representing the state was my ambition at that moment. I started representing the school (La Salle Sentul) in age of 16 for 400M, 800M &4x400M. Following year, I manage get into the Sentul District Team for the similar events. On 1999, I applied for KL state team and manage get called up for the training. I was then training for 800M & 1500M. I got best athlete ward in my school (Maxwell High School), while I waspursuing my STPM. In 2001, I got into University Malaya for Degree in Accounting. But my passion on running still continues where I represented my University in 3000M steeplechase, 5000M and 10000M. I manage to win 1 silver, 4 bronze in my 4 yaers representing the University.
My coach advised me to take part in Road races for fitness purpose. I started taking part in Road races since 2001 and always finished out of top 100. That came to an end in 2005 Power run, when I sneaked at 96th position. Since then, there's no turning back, as I always grab a medal in every race till today.
To ensure I dont loose touch with track events, I do join national coach, Mr.Istiaq Mubarak for track training at MSN, Bkt Jalil.
Currently I'm the defending Champion among Malaysian Accountant's for 1500M where I have won it 3 years in row (2006-2008).
My next target is to complete a marathon and switch to Duathlon.
Running is the cheapest sport but most effective sport."
Hope this is enough for u.
