Mukundan’s stunning performance in the 50m Butterfly Event was particularly noteworthy, as he clocked an impressive time of 33.94 seconds. This achievement secured him a ‘B’ Qualifying time for the Paris Olympics 2024, bringing him closer to the Minimum Qualifying Standard for the highly anticipated event.
