INDIA: Buoyed by the glory of Indian athletes in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, three Iconic personalities of their respective fields have officially pledged their support for promoting budding sporting champions from the eight North-Eastern states of the country. Bonding over coffee at the breathtaking DLF Golf & Country Club in Gurugram, India’s swashbuckling opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan, IPS Robin Hibu (President Helping Hands), and Maj. Vishal Bakshi (M.D, V.R Industries) officially announced the launch of 8AM Sports Diet Scholarship from this Olympics to the next Olympics.
The Sports Diet Scholarship will be for 50 youths who wish to pursue sports as their career but have certain constraints. The Sports Diet Scholarship comprising a nutritious breakfast diet is being sponsored by V.R Industries that has been serving the Armed Forces for the last 30 years by offering its wide range of breakfast cereals. Helping Hands spearheaded by the first IPS officer from Arunachal Pradesh Robin Hibu will be shouldering the responsibility of selecting the 50 most deserving and meritorious candidates.
Robin Hibu says, “National/State level medal winners in any sports category recognised by the Indian Olympic Association who are below 20 years of age and happen to be bonafide residents of North Eastern states can apply for this Scholarship.”
The heartthrob of millions, Shikhar Dhawan who played a pivotal role during the Corona Pandemic has always been at the forefront of all noble causes for the last many years. A true Samaritan, he pledged his support when he got to know about this unique initiative.
Shikhar Dhawan says, “Fitness holds the key to achieving any milestone in sports. An agile body needs to be duly complemented with a nutritious diet. Considering the humongous potential of our youths, the idea of augmenting their career with a nutritious breakfast diet can do wonders in transforming them into Champions and Medal Winners at the International level. After all, Jo fit hai.. wahi hit hai.”
Vishal Bakshi also added, “8AM breakfast bowls of cereal being all indigenous “Made in India” products will give a big fillip to the “Aatma Nirbhar Bharat Campaign” and play a critical role in helping promising youths of the country fulfill their long-cherished dreams of excelling at the Olympics.”
