  • Anees and his elder brother, Muhammed Anas Yahiya, both participated in the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
  • In 2022, Anees could not fly to Europe for competitions while his contenders including Murali Sreeshankar and Jeswin Aldrin took part in the competitions. According to Anees, his visa was not granted and his lack of sponsorship limited him from going to Europe. In a telephonic interview, he said,

    I wanted to compete overseas as well. But, my visa did not come through. I had shortlisted two competitions for 21st May and 29th May, but could not travel. The officials were not satisfied with my whereabouts between those eight days and hence did not grant me the visa. I cannot really tell how they (Sreeshankar and Anees) got the visa. I can only assume that it’s because both of them have sponsors backing them. I currently don’t have any private entity backing me.” [3]The Bridge
