 At the National Championships

 At the Asian Age-group championships

Soon after his outstanding performance at the Asian level, Anshul K. Kothari won three more medals at the 71st Senior National Aquatic Championship held recently in Bhopal. Representing Gujarat, the 27-year-old from Surat won two silvers and one bronze, despite a tough schedule where he had to compete in two finals within a gap of just 20 minutes. Anshul is the son of Sushamaben and Ketanbhai Rasiklal Kothari.

At the Bhopal meet, he won silver medals in 100m freestyle (Timing 00.52.19 seconds) and in 50m freestyle (Timing 00.23.30 seconds), and a bronze in the 50m butterfly (Timing: 00. 24.91 seconds). 
Last month, Anshul once again did the country proud at the 9th Asian Age-group Aquatic Championships held at Tashkent (Uzbekistan) from September 8 to 11, 2017, winning two silver and two bronze medals in the four events that he participated in. Anshul is the son of Sushamaben and Ketanbhai Rasiklal Kothari.
At the event, which had participation from 30 countries, Anshul secured a silver medal in the 50m Butterfly (Timing: 0:24:84 seconds) and a bronze in the 50m Freestyle (Timing: 0:23:28 seconds). He was also a part of the Indian teams that won silver in the 4x100 mixed relay and bronze in the 4x100m freestyle relay. 
Anshul, who has earlier represented the country in the Commonwealth and Asian Games, is a Post Graduate Programme (PGP) student of management at the Indian School of Business (ISB).  In a recent interview he gave to the media, Anshul has said that he is pursuing a rigorous training programme and has set his sights on representing India at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
