The dignitaries felicitated Olympians from Maharashtra who qualified for the Olympic Games Rio 2016- Ms. Kavita Raut, Athletics, Ms. Lalita Babar, Athletics and Mr. Dattu Bhoknal, Rowing.
Dr Rajiv Yeravdekar said, “It is an applaudable feat that our sportsman from Maharashtra were selected to participate in Rio2016. Hailing from small towns like Satara and Nashik, our Olympian have rose and overcome the hardships even with the absence of talent, infrastructure but still stood tall amongst the rest and made us and our country proud. Inaugurating our first national conference by felicitating Olympians is the best way to commence the 1st National Sports Science Congress event.”
Dr. J.S. Sandhu, highlighted it is wrong to blame the Olympians for not winning any medals. “We are not providing adequate support to sportsman so that they can prove their potential internationally. A sportsman requires proper nutrition, biomechanist and physiologists among others. Course at Symbiosis School of Sports Sciences from Symbiosis International University is a notch above others and will address the inadequacy issue. The course is designed to train students to cater to the need of the vibrant job profiles in the sports industry. The need for professionals is increasing not only in India but also across Asia.”
Dr J.S.Sandhu advised that in the near future the Sports Sciences College should also include small courses in Sports Physiotherapy, Sports Nutrition and so forth.
Eminent speakers’ present covered topics like Sports Medicine, Sports Technology, Sports Injury Prevention and Management, Sports Law and Doping in Sports. The conference aim is to share scientific developments with sports managers, trainers, administrators, mentors, athletes from all disciplines, etc. who work in this field and also establish a network of people who would be role models for aspiring young sports professionals and practitioners.
