RUN FOR RIO
Our Principal Thiru. K. Francis had flagged off the ‘Run for Rio’ here on Sunday as a means to encourage the Indian contingent at the Olympics beginning on August 5.
The 5km run, from IGPTC, Mahe to the Walkway, Mahe, was meant to express the nation’s support to the Indian athletes at Rio.
Sports minister Vijay Goel, whose ministry organised the event, said the government would focus on providing facilities and sports infrastructure at the grassroots level, especially, for indigenous and popular sports.
Asserting that the 119 Indian athletes who have qualified for the Olympics have done so after a lot of trials, Modi said that they were not just there as individuals but as upholders of the pride of 125 crore Indians.
