Message To Government

What Are The Reasons Behind The Indian Government Not Supporting The Indian Swimmers?

We Have A Swimming Team Yes We Do Have. They Are Begging For Support, In Short Of Funds To Join The International Tournaments. But No One Is Really Helping. None Of The Media Houses Are Actually Sharing It. Government Often Provide Huge Funds For Cricket Team(Mainly) But Why Ignore Other Sports Like Swimming. Why Are The Media And Other Government Houses Ignoring, Denying The Support??

We Have To Spread This Question As Much As Possible Because We All Know That Our India Has Many Swimming Players Who Have Great Potential To Reach Peak Of This Sports But Due To Lack Of Funds They Are Still Unknown To Us And Still Struggling. To come to that level, a swimmer need better facilities, assistance from all corners, a lot more funding and a lot more support. If you have to compare our swimmers with those from the countries that make the semifinals and finals of Olympics, you have to also compare all the facilities and support that those swimmers receive. We are nowhere near any of them.

Come Forward To Sponsor Sagar Kamble And Push Sagar’s Limit To International Stage And Sagar Is Now Representing India In International Platform. If you are interested in supporting then please contact Shubhangi Advertising.
