NEW DELHI: Former Indian athlete and Olympian P.T. Usha has been conferred with the prestigious International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) Veteran Pin Award.

Usha received the award at the 52nd IAAF conference in Doha.

"Expressing my deep gratitude towards IAAF and President Sebestian Coe for awarding me the Veteran Pin at the 52nd IAAF conference in Doha. I look forward to continually contributing to the growth of athletics in our country!" Usha tweeted on Wednesday.

Along with the tweet, she also posted pictures of her receiving the award from IAAF President Sebastian Coe.
