Kheta Ram

He had finished third in the Mumbai Marathon which helped him qualify for the Olympics. He finished with a timing of 2:17:23 hours, which helped him make the cut as the qualifying mark for the Games was two hours 19 minutes.

"I earlier concentrated on track and field events, but since I have not been doing well in my main event (5000 metres), I and my coach decided to do the half marathon for the past couple of years. I have now switched to the full marathon as I want participate in the Mumbai Marathon and hope to meet the Olympic qualifying mark."

In most of the Games in Olympics, if you lose Quarterfinals you cannot win a Bronze Medal. Bronze Medal match always happens between two loser semifinalists. So if person loses in Quarterfinals, he or she can not win any medal and crashes out of Olympics. So how did Sakshi Malik won Bronze Medal even after losing in Quarter-Finals.
