The celebrities and sportsmen from India have sent their messages of support and encouragement to the Indian contingent for the Tokyo Olympics. Sachin Tendulkar has also written a message for the national teams in Tokyo.
Sachin Tendulkar has recently inspired India’s Tokyo-bound athletes who are currently waiting for the start of the Olympic games. Tendulkar said that he’s aware of the training process of the athletes to show an outstanding performance and encouraged people to root for them in a video shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). “All of us have faced challenges, including our athletes, and I know that they are getting geared up to give their best in the Tokyo Olympics,” said the cricket celebrity in the video.
The cricket community of India has also shared some videos of its other members with help of the BCCI. In those videos, such persons as Mithali Raj and Virat Kohli cheer up national sportsmen before the start of the Tokyo Games.
“The BCCI proudly joins the Honourable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi in extending our wholehearted support to the Team India athletes at Tokyo 2020. They have trained hard and are raring to go. Let us get together and Cheer 4 India,” comments the Indian cricket board on Twitter.
The Tokyo Olympics starts on Friday and will allow all the participants to show their best performances. India has sent 119 sportsmen to the Games in Tokyo this year. The Indian contingent has appointed India’s hockey skipper Manpreet Singh and Olympic bronze medallist and Six-time World champion MC Mary Kom to become the flag bearers for the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympic Games.
