She made her Olympic dream come true by clocking a personal best of 52.40 seconds at the third Indian Grand Prix , back in April 2016. Her impressive form over the last few months sealed a spot in the women’s 4×400 meters relay event. Anilda was also given the fastest runner’s tag in the women’s 400 meters event. The quarter miler’s journey, however, wasn’t that easy one. Just before her successful stint in April, she received a threatening mail from the Athletics Federation of India and the National coach, urging her to join the National camp. Around 350 athletes will be competing in the two-day event which will also be the trials to select the state team for the 57th National Inter-State Senior Athletics Championship scheduled to be held at Guntur, Andhra Pradesh from July 15 to 18.In the previous edition held at Hyderabad, Kerala were the overall champions.

They said that if she did not report at the National camp, she would not be allowed to compete in National and international meets. The Kerala athlete, the National Games champion, had been the country’s fastest 400m runner for a good part of last season but with Ukrainian Yuri Ogorodnik returning as the coach of the women’s 4x400m relay runners, she was not keen on joining the camp. Ogorodnik was the coach of the relay team when the country’s biggest doping scandal broke out in 2011six relay runners were suspended for two years then after they failed dope tests and with Yuri Ogorodnik returning to the country last year, Anilda had a good reason to be worried about going to the National camp.
