"Sports is more than just about victory; it's about surmounting challenges and embodying the spirit of dedication, resilience, and a collective aspiration that unites the hearts of billions. On this #NationalSportsDay, let's not just cheer for the triumphs, but also for the journey, the challenges, and the bond they symbolise.
IndianOil takes immense pride in our galaxy of #sportstars. Their achievements are not just their own, but a reflection of a nation on the rise. Be it the dynamic duo of Satwik and Chirag, Lakshya's commanding presence in badminton, the tennis triumphs of Rohan Bopanna and Sumit Nagal, Sharath Kamal's prowess in table tennis, the brilliance of our chess prodigies Pragg, Harika, and Adhiban, the spectacular performances of our olympians Hardik Singh, Simranjeet Singh, Krishna Pathak and the hockey sensations Jyoti, Akshata, Mahima, and Ajmina. Adding to this list of recent achievers, we are proud to nurture a lineup of over 160+ sports talents who have carved a niche for themselves, and for India.
Our commitment to foster the next generation of sporting talents under our 'Acers' and 'Shakti' sponsorship programmes have yielded tremendous results with many of our players showcasing their mettle and reaping successes at international tournaments.
The transformative might of sports is not just about medals and accolades. Through our endeavours like 'Parivartan: Prison to Pride' and 'Nayi Disha: Smile for Juvenile', we see its power to bring about positive change to thousands of inmates.
On this day, as we celebrate the birth anniversary of hockey legend #MajorDhyanChand, we are reminded of his words – that the spirit, sweat, and sacrifice of each of our athletes adds glory to our nation.
We are proud of each of our #sportstars. Wishing you continued success as you strive to add more glories to our nation.🇮🇳🏆🌟
Here's to a brighter future on and off the field. Happy #NationalSportsDay " - S M Vaidya, Chairman, IndianOil
