CII-Southern Region organized its Annual Regional Meeting for the year 2022-23 and a conference on South India@100 with the theme “GOING BEYOND BOUNDARIES” today in Hyderabad
During the Session on ‘Positioning India’s Leadership through Sports- Journey to 2047’
Ms. Sania Mirza, Indian Tennis Player said that Hyderabad’s sporting culture is very strong and believes that sports could be a career. When more people play, then you have more champions. We are more of a cricket nation than a sports nation. In the last 20 years, we have witnessed drastic changes in the sports arena. When you don’t believe to be the best or a champion then you won’t become a champion. We all should be given independence and should be allowed to do what we feel is good for us. We need to be the best version of ourselves.
Mr. Pullela Gopichand, Chief National Coach, of the Indian National Badminton team, said that States or region does not matter but only performance matters. When need to focus on identifying the right talent and training them in such a way that they become the best in the world. As Coaches, we evolve continuously and our roles keep changing according to our needs. We don’t have prescribed roles.
Mr. Suhail Chandhok, Sports presenter & Commentator moderated the session
