Parul Chaudhary, Abhishek Pal crowned new Indian Champions at TCS World 10K 2022

Parul Chaudhary, Abhishek Pal crowned new Indian Champions at TCS World 10K 2022

On a day where the Bengaluru skies displayed its varying moods, two new champions in Parul Chaudhary and Abhishek Pal were crowned champions in the Indian men’s and women’s field respectively at the TCS World 10K Bengaluru 2022 on Sunday.  

It was an easy win for Parul who hardly strayed away from the lead role in the pack, but Sanjivani, the 2019 champion who was looking to defend her title, was keeping pace with her until the pack entered the Kanteerava stadium for the final stretch. “The route was a little hilly,” said Parul of the course where she has featured for the second time. “But it was good because we practice for this. I’m happy with the test I did for speed.” A final burst from Parul allowed her to finish at the top and set a personal best in 10K road running at 34:38. Sanjivani finished 6 seconds behind at 34:44. 

The surprise of the day was for Komal Jagadale who also managed to break away from the pack in the last 350m of the race and finish at 35:28. For Komal, a steeplechaser, it was an incredible debut 10K race where she finished ahead of her seniors, something which she herself was amazed by. “I didn’t think I would place on the podium. I didn’t care much about chasing the international athletes because I was busy competing against the Indian field itself.”  

The rain-affected the race conditions for all three podium finishers, but to varying degrees. While Sanjivani waxed eloquent about the Bengaluru course being her favourite and Parul was only a little disturbed by the puddles, Komal’s view was interesting. “The rain didn’t affect me much because I dealt with it like a steeplechaser,” she recounted with a laugh, summing up the mood of the Indian women’s podium. 

The men’s field featured a podium that finished with 1 second of each other with Abhishek Pal taking the top spot at 30:05 while both Kartik Kumar and Gulveer Singh finished at 30:06. For both Kartik and Gulveer, it was their first time racing a 10K on road and both runners, who train together at a camp in Ooty, were pleased with their performance. Kartik, in particular, led a rather jovial mood at the post-race press conference while recollecting his race. “It was a little tough in some places [with the puddles on the road from the rain]. There may have been a mistake in the middle, but I didn’t want to overtake the seniors too much,” said Kartik jokingly. “It feels nice with everybody gets a medal.”  

Gulveer also joined in the cheery atmosphere as he outlined his preparation for the race. “We all train together so the strategy was to follow the two in front.” While Gulveer, a 10K road race novice, has yet to qualify for the Asian Games, both Abhishek and Kartik have secured qualification in the 5k event. “I’m happy that I won here this time. It’s my third time here at TCS World 10K – I placed 4th in 2017 but couldn’t finish in 2019 because of a knee injury.” 

The hot and humid conditions that emerged after consistent showers through the night before the race did little to dispel the spirits of the amateur athletes running in the Open 10K that kicked off at 5:30am on Sunday and the categories that followed – Senior Citizens’ Run, Champions with Disabilities and Majja Run – all categories where participants ran for a cause close to their heart.  

Over 12000 people crossed the finish line in the Open 10K category while over 4800 people were part of the Majja Run, apart the Senior Citizen Run and Champions With Disability categories where participants were encouraged to turn out in unique costumes and run together as a group supporting their desired organisation.  

The International Event Ambassador for TCS World 10K 2022, former American sprinter and 4-time Olympic champion Justin Gatlin was swept up in the fervour created in the Kanteerava stadium with the return of the much-anticipated event. “It’s a festival, [one] doesn’t feel the need to compete at a certain level.” The American even hinted at a possible marathon debut as part of his post-retirement plans. “It’s the discipline of it all [on maintaining his fitness after retirement] – keeping fit and wanting to look in the mirror and saying, ‘I look good.”

Records tumble at the TCS World10K Bengaluru 2022

Records tumble at the TCS World10K Bengaluru 2022

Kenya’s Nicholas Kipkorir Kimeli and Irene Cheptai ran course records of 27:38 and 30:35 respectively at the 14th edition of the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) World 10K Bengaluru 2022 – a World Athletics Elite Label Race – on Sunday, 15th  May. 

Kipkorir Kimeli, fourth in the Olympic Games 5000m last summer, took the lead with a kilometre to go and pulled away from Ethiopia’s reigning world U20 10,000m champion Tadese Worku to reduce the men’s course record by six seconds from the previous mark set by his compatriot Geoffrey Kamworor in 2014. 

The race started off in an unusual manner with Kenya’s Reynold Kipkorir – who was to eventually finish ninth – out on his own for much of the first 5km, passing the halfway point in 14:00 with the rest of the elite field staying around 70 metres in arrears. 

However, shortly after going through 5km, Worku changed gear and started to rapidly tow the leading men back to Kipkorir before going past him just before the 6km point and then increasing the pace further.

Kipkorir Kimeli continued running just behind Worku for the next three kilometres, letting his Ethiopian rival do all the hard work as the pair gradually got back onto course record pace as they also put daylight between themselves and the rest of the men’s field. 

Worku still looked fresh as they reached the final kilometre but could not respond when Kipkorir Kimeli took the lead, with the latter almost sprinting like a middle-distance runner over the final 300 metres as the finish line approached in Bengaluru’s Sree Kanteerava Stadium. 

Kipkorir Kimeli crossed the line in 27:38 with Worku also inside the old record with 27:43 while the Kenyan pre-race favourite, and former world half marathon record holder, Kibiwott Kandie made up three places in the final two kilometres and came through for third in 27:57. 

By contrast, Ethiopia’s two-time reigning world champion 5000m Muktar Edris was never in contention for the podium and finished back in seventh. 

“Honestly, I was not expecting to get the course record. When we reached 5K, we didn’t think we will get the course record, in fact, even when we crossed the 7K-mark, I didn’t think we will make the record. But only when Worku pushed ahead, I picked up pace towards the end,” reflected Kipkorir Kimeli. 

The women’s race unfolded in a very different fashion to the men’s and Irene Cheptai took an even bigger slice out of the women’s course record which had stood to the late Agnes Tirop at 31:19 since 2018. 

After a super-fast opening two kilometres of 3:02 and 3:04, a quick time was always likely and the race was soon down to just three women at the front: Cheptai, Obiri and fellow Kenyan Joyce Tele. 

Tele started to lose contact with her compatriots in the fifth kilometre before Obriri, pushing the pace with Cheptai running in her slipstream, passed the halfway point in 15:15. 

Obiri led the race for the next two kilometres, going through 6km in 18:23 and 7km in 21:32, before Cheptai took her turn to push at the front for a kilometre as Obiri briefly went through a bad patch. 

However, Obiri soon recovered her poise and regained the lead just after embarking on the penultimate kilometre. 

The Kenyan pair carried on their enthralling head-to-head battle but with just 250 metres to go, Cheptai darted past Obiri and was never headed before crossing the line in a personal best of 30:35, her first time inside 31 minutes. 

Obiri eased off once she knew the race was lost but still came home in an outstanding 30:44, also inside Tirop’s former course record, while Tele was a distant third in 31:47 to complete an all-Kenyan podium. 

“When we raced through an inclined patch on the route [just after 7km], I felt like Hellen’s pace reduced, that’s when I tried harder to take lead. But even when I entered the stadium for the final lap, I was fearing Hellen and kept pushing my speed to win,” commented Cheptai. 

Kipkorir Kimeli and Cheptai both took home first place cheques of USD $26,000 for their victories and course record bonuses of USD $8000.

Wealthtech platform ‘BHIVE.fund’ raises strategic investment from Nikhil Kamath’s Gruhas, Blume

Wealthtech platform ‘BHIVE.fund’ raises strategic investment from Nikhil Kamath’s Gruhas, Blume

Alternative Investments Wealthtech Platform ‘BHIVE.fund’ has raised strategic investments from Gruhas Proptech and Blume Ventures. Gruhas was co-founded by Nikhil Kamath of Zerodha and Abhijeet Pai of Puzzolana and is India’s largest proptech-focussed entity. Blume Ventures, a leading VC firm in the country today, counts multiple unicorns in its portfolio.

‘BHIVE.fund’ was set up by ‘BHIVE Workspace’, the oldest and one of the largest coworking and managed office players in Bengaluru. ‘BHIVE Workspace’ currently runs the largest coworking space in the city and will soon launch India’s largest coworking campus.

“This investment represents a significant milestone towards closing $1 million of Pre-Series A. We have term sheets and commitments to the ongoing Pre-Series A round which will be closing soon,” said Shesh Paplikar, cofounder & CEO of ‘BHIVE.fund’.

“We invested in ‘BHIVE Workspace’ through Blume Fund II in 2015. We have been closely working with Shesh and team, and have been witness to the grit and resilience the team has shown through the pandemic. We are excited about ‘BHIVE Workspace’s’ new venture — ‘BHIVE.fund’. We continue to believe in the capability of this team to build a robust biz. They have evolved to be solving the current real estate problem and are building a scalable business in an ever-growing commercial real estate market in India,” says Sarita Raichura, Vice-President, Blume Ventures.

The round also saw participation from prominent angel investors including Sreeram Reddy Vanga of Kofluence, Leadsquared founders Nilesh Patel and Prashant Singh, Kazi Arif Zaman, CFA, Partner at GestAlt Network and former MD of Everstone Capital, Partner of a prominent California VC firm, and NRIs from the US, etc.

“I have always been a big believer in Commercial Real Estate as an investment class. Technology is disrupting this segment and will bring in more investors through a fractional real estate mechanism. A similar model adopted by ‘BHIVE Workspace’ to the broader alternative asset class is set to grow big. I am very happy to come in as an investor and join Shesh & team on their journey,” expresses Sreeram Reddy Vanga, Investing-Founder, Kofluence.

‘BHIVE Workspace’ had, in 2021, raised a seed round from the likes of Madhusudan, Cofounder & CEO of KreditBee, Durgesh Kaushik Snapchat India and South Asia Head, Alok Bajpai, CFO, Adani Connex, who has also been a constant mentor and support, and others who confirmed their belief in ‘BHIVE Workspace’s’ vision. This US-headquartered company had also seen participation from over ten NRI investors.

The ‘BHIVE.fund’ was founded in January 2021 by Shesh Rao Paplikar, Sandeep Gupta and Monnappa Bayavanda. The platform has already achieved product-market fit and has reached a sales run rate of a million dollars per month. Through the tech-driven platform, they enable individual investors to invest in business opportunities, domestic commercial real estate and international real estate.

“Nikhil and Abhijeet are big believers that huge disruptions are possible in the commercial real estate space using technology. While not all investors may understand this space well, Abhijeet comes with a wealth of experience and expertise in the commercial real estate sector, having been involved in many large deals. Nikhil, as we all know, is one of the biggest names in the wealth tech space. We are super excited to have them on board as strategic investors as we are looking to make this into something much much bigger,” says Shesh Rao Paplikar, co-founder & CEO, BHIVE Workspace.
.
“Blume Ventures has always been a very big supporter of us. They were the key investors of our previous startup which is into coworking. By making independent investment into our fintech entity ‘BHIVE.fund’ they have shown great faith in the founders and the vision we have for the platform,” continues Shesh..

The company intends to utilize these funds for growth. Key usage will be towards building comprehensive technology to scale operations, building a strong investment team, educating customers on alternative asset space, etc.

About BHIVE.fund

Hilton Hotel and Convention Centre debuts at Bengaluru’s Largest Hospitality Complex at Embassy Manyata

• Hilton Hotels Embassy Manyata Bengaluru comes to life, with two Hilton-branded hotels and a state-of-the-art Convention Centre.
• Embassy Manyata’s ‘Total Business Ecosystem’ evolves further; encompassing Work, Stay, Meet and Dine.

Bengaluru, India, May 02, 2022
Embassy Office Parks REIT (NSE: EMBASSY / BSE: 542602) (‘Embassy REIT’), India’s first publicly listed real estate investment trust and Asia’s largest by area, and leading global hospitality company Hilton (NYSE: HLT) announced the opening of Hilton Bengaluru Embassy Manyata Business Park and the Hilton Convention Centre at Embassy Manyata Business Park (‘Embassy Manyata’), Bengaluru. Hilton’s 266-key flagship-branded hotel and connecting conference facilities are part of the 619-key dual-branded hotel complex, which includes the 353-key Hilton Garden Inn Bengaluru Embassy Manyata Business Park launched earlier this year. The three premises form the Hilton Hotels Embassy Manyata complex, owned by Embassy REIT and managed by Hilton.

The Hilton Hotels Embassy Manyata is one of the largest hotel complexes in South India, and amongst the biggest in the country.
