Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar has express gratitude for all the countrymen for supporting the Indian athletes in Rio Olympics. He asserted that “All sportspersons need support when chips are down.”
Just two days back, India has gained just one Bronze Medal in the Rio Olympic Games which was bagged by Sakshi Malik. Last year, India had achieved six medals in the last Olympics that took place in London. Tendulkar was in Rio De Janerio in the opening half to support the atheletes. He feels that “Athletes need support in their hour of crisis.”
“Few results have not been to our liking but in sports there is always ups and downs. I am thankful to the entire nation for staying behind our athletes and supporting them,” he said.
“If things are not going our way we need to find ways to make things better. That can only happen if we continue to give them support,” Tendulkar said
Tendulkar also appreciated Sakshi Malik who secured Bronze Medal in 58 Kg cateogry. “I am really happy for Sakshi. She has really done well and made the country proud,” he said.
Tendulkar is also eagerly waiting for Indian shuttler P V Sindhu’s women’s singles gold medal match against world no. 1 Carolina Marin of Spain which will take place today.
“I am extremely happy and excited about Sindhu’s match today. I don’t want to miss that and will be praying for her success,” said Tendulkar.
