Equal support to each sport will make India a sporting nation, says Mary Kom

Mumbai, Dec 5 (UNI) World's most successful women boxer MC Mary Kom who has recently clinched her record-sixth gold medal in the 48 kg category of the AIBA World Women's Boxing Championship, believes that equal support to each and every sport will make India a sporting power in the world.
The London Olympic Bronze medallist was speaking at the The Indian Federation of Sports Gaming (IFSG)'s discussion and dialogue 'Is India on its way to becoming a Sporting Powerhouse?’ here on Wednesday.
“I am happy to be associated with IFSG’s initiative as I feel that for India to truly become a sporting nation and be seen as a strong contender in the international arena, support needs to be given not only for team sports but also to individual sports", said the world boxing champion, adding that, IFSG’s 'Stars of Tomorrow' is another welcome step towards achieving national goals."
Launching the (SOT) programme, John Loffhagen, President, IFSG, said, “Inspired by the Indian Sports Ministry’s efforts and initiatives, IFSG wants to facilitate and contribute towards building India as a great sporting nation. Being a part of the sports ecosystem, we feel it is our responsibility to enable the overall growth of sports and provide specific support to deserving athletes at an individual level.”
Under the programme, a total of 13 talented athletes have been selected to be a part of IFSG’s (SOT). Dream 11 Foundation, the primary contributor to this programme, has pledged Rs 3 crores to support IFSG’s cause, the organisation statement said.
