At the Polish Athletics Championships in June 2016, Anas broke the country’s 400-meter record, clocking a time of 45.40 seconds—exactly the Olympic qualification time for 2016. After Milkha Singh (1956 and 1960) and K. M. Binu (2004), Anas Yahiya became the third athlete from India to qualify for this Olympic event.
Anas was a member of the relay team that broke the 4 400 m national record in Bangalore in July 2016 and qualified for the Olympics in Rio. The team of Anas, Kunhu Muhammed, Ayyasamy Dharun, and Arokia Rajiv beat their previous best of 3:02.17 established in Turkey four weeks earlier by clocking 3:00:91. They were ranked number 13 in the world as a result.
