At the Junior National Aquatics, actor Madhavan’s son Vedaant broke the National Junior Record for the 1500 m freestyle.
He smashed the previous mark of 16 minutes and set a new meet milestone.
Madhavan posted a video of his son Vedaant competing in the aquatic competition, with the commentator’s commentary in the background. Vedaant is shown swiftly building up speed to accomplish a new accomplishment, shocking everyone.
‘He broke Advait’s record around the 780 m point in around 16 minutes, but he ramped up his speed superbly, I did not expect him to achieve it,’ the commentator is heard saying, adding that they will obtain the official clocking soon.
Madhavan wrote, ‘Never say never. National Junior Record for 1500m freestyle broken,’ and added several hearts, folded hands emojis to his post.
Vedaant is a professional swimmer and won a gold in swimming at the Danish Open 2022 in Copenhagen. Madhavan often documents his victories and expresses his pride. In an earlier interview with Brut, the actor joked that people come to him to talk about his son and not his films. ‘I am really jealous right now because every time I meet people on the road in Mumbai, I think that they are coming up to me with a smile because I think they are congratulating me for Rocketry but then they say, ‘He not really got the silver, but gold.’ My assistants have a good laugh at my expense. I am trying to win this competition by shutting him off and keeping him off the press while I can,’ he said.
Madhavan also mentioned that he was grateful to be privileged enough to be able to move to Dubai and support Vedaant for his training in the Olympics.
