New Delhi: For most athletes, it's going to remain a dream, but for India's Amiya Mallik, the dream has come true. The 200m runner from Bhubaneswar, has bagged a training stint with Jamaican Glen Mills, whose most famous student also happens to be the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt.

When Amiya Mallik returns from Jamaica in four-five months, his life would've changed forever. At least that's what he hopes. Afterall, Mills isn't your ordinary athletics coach. He trains none other than six-time Olympic gold medallist, Bolt. Yohan Blake, who was the 100m world champion in 2011, also trains under Mills.

"Glen Mills is a man who needs no introduction. Very few people have the amount of knowledge that he has. In these few months, I will try and learn as much as I can from him", Amiya told NDTV from Bhubaneshwar, before leaving for Jamaica.
