Congratulations boys! 💖Historic first GOLD medal for India at the 2019 UCI Junior Track Cycling World Championships—this was India’s first gold at a world cycling event, senior or junior ... Esow also won the 2nd medal when he won a Bronze in his favorite keirin event, in 2018, he won a silver in the keirin in Switzerland.

Esow Alben won his 3rd medal of this World Championships ... He reached in the final of the Men Sprint event but lost after losing 2 races against Greece's Konstantinos Livanos ... A still creditable show from Esow on this big stage ... So first-time India win three medals in the Junior Track Cycling World Championships; gold, silver, and bronze each.

That is really encouraging. Have we finally got world class talent in cycling. Probably will have to wait for next 2-3 years to see how Esow shapes up.

This is very encouraging. Can we dream of Olympic and World medals in the near future?

More coverage from media outlets like CNN too on Esow! It all seems to fit in now with sports ministry identifying Cycling as one of the prospective medal sports in 2024 and 2028.
