“I had a go to with my IOC colleague and pal Nita Ambani to their Reliance Basis and the programmes they’re providing to the children and youth with regard to sports activities and schooling. I have to say I’m deeply impressed with what’s being completed there by Reliance and Nita Ambani’s crew. There are children from throughout India in these centres and most of them come from underprivileged households. They’re provided education however on the identical time given a chance to coach and put together to turn into high-level athletes. That is one thing that’s precisely reflecting our Olympic values which we’ve got in our methods.
“To see it at such a scale and being done by a private entity which is the Reliance Foundation and being guided by our colleague is very very impressive and very encouraging, also for the future of Olympic sport in India. This is also greatly supported by political authorities. We also had a meeting with the Chief Minister of Maharashtra (Eknath Shinde). They are also in full support of the sports movement and there is a growing private support for athletes and sport.”
