Kheta attributed the improvement to the hard training particularly in Udhagamandalam under the Coach Surinder Singh Bhandari. Two years ago it was with a meet record in the 5000mts at the Federation Cup event held in Patiala that Kheta qualified for the Incheon Asiad. At the SAF Games early this year, Kheta picked the bronze in marathon. He had clocked 2:21:14 hrs
