Introduction
These records are a work in progress. A number of results from Sri Chinmoy’s early years in America have, unfortunately, been lost over time. Again, other events in which Sri Chinmoy participated may come to light. This table contains a mixture of official races and key training sessions. Since Sri Chinmoy placed more emphasis on personal progress than on competition, he regarded both marks as equally important. His training sessions are also valuable indicators of the dedication he brought to his beloved track and field events. In later years, when the condition of his knees would no longer permit him to sprint or jump, he still participated wherever possible in the throwing events. These records are from the notebooks and records of Bipin, Ketan, Savita, Chetana and Vidagdha.
