Last year, Bhawna participated in the International Race Walking in Ranchi and performed the best in a walk of 20 km in 1 hour 29 minutes 54 seconds. From here, Bhavna’s path was paved for the Tokyo Olympics. He had qualified for the February 2020 Olympics last year, but due to Corona, the Olympics did not take place.
