Mohammad Anas Yahiya (born 17 September 1994) is an Indian sprinter who specialises in the 400 metres event. He participated in two events at the 2016 Summer Olympics: the 400 metres and the 4 × 400 m relay and holds the NR (45.31) for the event accomplished at the CG 2018 in Gold Coast,Queensland.

Anas broke the national record in 400 metres at the Polish Athletics Championship in Poland in June 2016, clocking 45.40 seconds, the exact qualification mark for the Olympics.[1] He thus became the third Indian athlete to qualify for the event at the Olympics, after Milkha Singh (1956 and 1960) and K. M. Binu (2004).[2]

In July 2016, Anas was part of the relay team that broke the national 4 × 400 metres relay at Bangalore and qualified for the Olympics. The quartet of Anas, Kunhu Mohammed, Ayyasamy Dharun and Arokia Rajiv clocked 3:00:91, rewriting the national record of 3:02.17 set by themselves four weeks earlier in Turkey. The performance also helped the relay team jump to 13th place in the world rankings. He was qualified for IAAF in Bahamas after clocking 45.32 seconds in the Indian Grand Prix.[3]
