Rijiju expects best-ever haul in Tokyo, sets sight on 2028 Olympics

first_img Press Trust Of India COMMENT “With the time which is in our hand, we must ensure that India is no more a country which is not taken seriously in the Olympics. I will definitely not be satisfied as a sports minister of the country if we don’t win medals,” he said. The minister said nest year’s Tokyo Olympics is the immediate target but infrastructure needs to be put in place for future events for athletes to perform well. “Tokyo is an immediate target with the existing talent. We cannot create champions overnight. It’s not possible to create world champions in a year or two. We have to ensure that the entire infrastructure is in place,” Rijiju said.”Having said that, we have certain existing talents at our disposal and we have to make the best of it. I hope Tokyo 2020 will be a good platform for India to have a best-ever Olympic performance but we have limitations. However, there is nothing stopping us from 2024 Paris and especially the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics which is more than 8 years away” he added.READ: Lost in translation: swimmer Sun Yang’s doping case hits interpretation snagOn performing well at international eventsRijiju also emphasised on the need to do well at international sporting events.”As a young nation, we can’t afford to lag behind in the international level of competition — be it the Olympics, Asian Games or any of the world championships.”We are a young nation that’s why we have to set an ambitious target. In the meeting with IOA (national Olympic body) and NSFs (sports federations), I had given them a very ambitious target. It’s not easy but not impossible either,” he said. “We are rising. In the last six months, our ranking and performance has increased.
