In a grand function in New Delhi, the Indian wrestling team that brought glory in the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics was also felicitated.
Olympic Silver medallist Ravi Kumar Dahiya, bronze medallist Bajrang Punia along with Anshu Malik, Sonam Malik, Seema Bisla, Deepak Punia and Vinesh Phogat graced the occasion and were presented with Tata Yodha pick-up vans.
Announcing the launch of the programme, Brijbhushan Sharan Singh, president of WFI said, “Tata Motors’ committed support since 2018 has helped Indian wrestling grow to greater heights. In the last 3 years, our ‘Yodhas’ have won more than 40-50 medals at international competitions including, 5 medals at the Senior World Wrestling championships – highest ever for India, record 11 medals at the just-concluded Junior World Championship, and 2 medals at recently held Tokyo Olympics,” he said.
“The Cadet Wrestling Team, too, won its first title of the World Championship. The launch of our joint quest today should enable us to fulfil the entire nation’s longstanding aspiration of winning an Olympics Gold medal in wrestling at the next Paris Olympics in 2024,” he added.
Girish Wagh, executive director, Tata Motors, said, “The sport of wrestling is deep rooted across India and enjoys a rich legacy of success in the global arena. Popular and followed by all sections of society, its machismo, aggression and endurance tests speed, agility and power. These virtues perfectly mirror the longevity, durability and robust performance of our commercial vehicles that are much valued by our customers both in India as well as international markets.”
A multi-year, strategic partnership, forged between WFI and Tata Motors in 2018, has been developing, promoting and encouraging wrestling as a sport by providing world-class infrastructure, facilities and training to Indian wrestlers.
Speaking on their association with the WFI, Wagh said, “Through our steadfast association with WFI, we will continue to promote, train and foster the nation’s rich wrestling talent. At Tata Motors, we believe in supporting the sport and sportspeople who will take our country ahead with their potential, zeal and passion. To ensure that our talented wrestlers have ready access to all that is required to realise their immense potential, further hone their skills and bring home the coveted Olympic Gold in 2024, we are making our ongoing partnership with WFI more holistic and purposeful. I wish the federation and our wrestlers the very best in this quest for the Gold at Paris Olympics 2024.”
