India’s premier technology startup conference, TechSparks Grand Finale, is just 3 days away and you might have already seen the illustrious list of speakers. I am sure all the speakers are thought leaders in their own fields and its going to be a memorable day listening to all of them (similar to last two editions). But then there will be one speaker/ speakers who is our personal favourite. I tell you my favourite speaker and I don’t want to miss that session.
Dr. Anu Vaidyanathan, Ultraman Athlete, IP Professor.
I recently signed up for The Wipro Chennai Marathon and currently undergoing the training. Now I know how difficult is the long distance running and amount of discipline one must have. Dr. Anu Vaidyanathan is an Ultraman Athlete. Now if you haven’t heard about Ultraman, it’s a three day stage-race comprising a 10K swim, 420K bike ride and an 84.4K run. Dr. Anu Vaidyanathan is the only Asian to have competed in and finished 6th at Ultraman. Here are some more milestones of Anu,
In 2009, she became the only Asian (male or female) to compete in Ultraman distance events (10K swim, 420K bike, 84.4K run) and Anu was the first Indian (male or female) to qualify for the Half-Ironman (1.9K swim, 90K bike, 21.1K run) World Championships in 2008.
Besides being an athlete, she runs a company, PatNMarks, that specializes in Intellectual Property Consulting. Anu also has a PhD in a record-setting time of 26 months from University of Canterbury at Christchurch, in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelors and Masters degrees in Computer Engineering.
