Sanjeeva Alwis Dissanayake, is a self-trained athlete who was stunning his school mates and All Island athletes about ten to twelve years ago when he breasted the 100m and 200m finish line first, without even a coach.
A student of CMS College Kottawa, Sanjeeva trained himself. He was the Under 19 All Island sprint specialist who later trained himself into middle distance running, winning the under 19, 400m as well.

Sanjeeva who was obsessed with planning out his own athletic training program without a coach - a phenomenon that does not exist today, was very used to finding out what works and what does not work. He checked out what exercises would help which muscle when done how often?
