Usha’s greatest moment was also the most shattering in her life as she was pushed to the fourth place in the 400 metres hurdles final at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. The Romanian Christina Cojocaru won the bronze medal. Usha lost by an agonizing 1/100th of a second. But every Indian household acknowledge the sense of achievement, though it fell shot of India’s first Olympic medal from the track. Several girls born during the 1980s were named after the golden girl. It serves as an eloquent testimony to the love and affection many people had for Usha.

Usha’s reign as the Asian sprint queen was highlighted by her snapping up five gold medals and a bronze at the 1985 Jakarta Asian track and field meet followed by a sensational four gold medals and one silver haul at the Seoul Asian Games the following year.

Well, champions are forever and Usha will always be the yardstick by which any woman athlete will be measured in this country.

2. How did she help her country men live the dream of rare sporting excellence?
