Under the expert guidance of his coach, Brinston Miranda, a distinguished figure in the world of hurdles racing, Angad honed his skills to perfection. 

He dedicated his monumental achievement to his late father Bishan Singh Bedi. The actor said, "This win is dedicated to my father, he always said that keep your head down and let your actions speak. I have always been deeply inspired by his wisdom. I did this race because that’s what my father would have wanted. It’s my way of honouring him and his legacy. Sportsmanship is in my blood. And I want to do exactly what my father would have expected of me. I did this race, in honour of him and his values that he has instilled in me during his wonderful life. He will always be there with me, as my guiding light.''

''I am also deeply grateful for the guidance and mentorship of Coach Miranda, whose expertise has been instrumental in my progress,'' added Bedi.

This victory of the 'Pink' actor is an inspiration for aspiring athletes and individuals pursuing their passions with steadfast determination. His commitment to representing India on a global platform serves as a shining example of the potential that lies within each of us to achieve greatness.
