AHMEDABAD: India’s dream of increasing its medal tally in the 2020, 2024, and 2028 Olympics seems to be moving in the right direction. To make this drive a success, the Olympics Task Force (OTF) — an initiative to boost Indian sportspersons’ performance in the Olympics — will organize a workshop in the city on February 23.
“We have invited nearly 150 persons from the sports fraternity,” said Kunal Desai, the coordinator of the event. “It is being supported by the Swarnim Gujarat Sports University and the Gujarat State Cooperative Bank.”
Invitees to this first-of-its-kind workshop include government representatives, sports journalists, sports clubs and academies, school principals, and coaches.
“The event will give a great opportunity to sportspersons and other stakeholders of Gujarat to express their opinions at the national level,” said Sandip Pradhan, the director-general of the Sports Authority of Gujarat.
