Young long distance runner Gavit Murali Kumar bagged a gold in men's 10,000 metre race at the Gouden Spike meeting in Leiden, The Netherlands. The 21-year-old Kumar, hailing from Gujarat, clocked a personal best of 28 minutes 43.34 seconds. 

It was the best by an Indian in the ongoing season. It was also the second fastest time by an Indian ever in the distance race, just short of long-distance coach Surendra Singh's national record of 28 minutes 02.89 seconds set at Vigo, Spain in 2008.

The Gouden Spike is one of the top meetings in The Netherlands. Its current European Athletics status is Outdoor Meetings with National Permit. 

Meanwhile, Indian athletes continued their preparations by taking part in various competitions during their training-cum-exposure tour of Europe.
