Woman ran 42 km long marathon wearing a sari

Anything is possible if you set your mind on doing it. This was recently proved by a 44-year-old woman who covered a distance of 42 km wearing a sari.

Jayanthi Sampath Kumar took part in a marathon in Hyderabad recently.

The marathon was attended by more than 20,000 people and Jayanthi Sampath Kumar stole the show with her determination. Jayanthi decided to wear a sari for the event to promote handloom and encourage other women.

Jayanthi has also applied for a Guinness World Record for her achievement. Interestingly, she was given company during the run by one Uday Bhaskar Dandamudi, who ran the marathon in a dhoti.
