Blind Kenyan marathoner Henry Wanyoike trained young women from the Hamara Foundation in Mumbai ahead of the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon on January 17. The girls from the NGO will run in support of Seeing is Believing, a programme of Standard Chartered Bank.

Wanyoike also has a message for India's youth, who he feels have a lot of potential and told us what it takes to become a champion.
