Asian Games Medalist , NIS Trained Coach , Stress Management Guru From Thrissur, Kerala

Methodology

I prefer one to one teaching methodology. Knowing the student is of primary importance before any training needs to be started and effective solutions advised.

Classes can be for anyone above class 5 to post graduate students also.

Background

I, O L Thomas, do bring along with me, more than 53 years of experience in Sports & Fitness primarily Athletics. This vast experience was gained in working with prestigious Institutions viz. Indian Airforce, Tata Motors & SAIL.
Thou as a youngster I always loved playing football and dreamt of representing India for the same, I quickly moved into athletics after playing for the Air force Station team in spite being the top scorer.
It is through Athletics, that I was able to achieve my dream to represent and win for India. I had the privilege of representing India in the 6th Asian Games Bangkok, 1970 and won the bronze medal for 4 X 100 meters relay. I again represented the country in the Asian Track & Field meet Tokyo, 1979 and won another bronze medal in the same event with a national record.
In a long span of 15 years, I have represented India, Services, various states, Tata Motors, SAIL and won more than 51 national medals, a rare feat and the only person to do it after Milkha Singh.
As my active years as Sportsman grew to an end , I went on to do my NS NIS Diploma Coaching course in Athletics , so that I could achieve my dream to win an Olympic Medal for India thru my students. In a role that existed 18 years, as Senior Coach, I was able to produce Junior Level athletes in hammer throw, jumps, middle & long distance runners including marathon. These athletes were produced at grass root level with no facilities whatsoever. Most of these students are now employed with Indian Army, Railways, Police and other government institutions.
During my entire career, I have written various articles and publications on Sports & Fitness, authored a Malayalam sports novel, an English book on history of Indian Sports & facts. I am currently working on a movie script on sports. I use to conduct stress management workshops for senior management during my career and continue to do so for banks, corporate & MBA colleges even after retirement. I currently run a free club for the elderly with approx 700 members in Kerala focusing on health and fitness.
It’s always been my dream to get India an Olympic Medal in Athletics. A dream which still persists .If given a chance I am willing to put my various years of experience and knowledge in fulfilling the dream. I am looking forward from Organizations, Institutions & Individuals who share the same dream like me.
Hoping for my dream to come true.
