Swimming has received more importance recently: Shivangi Sarma

NEW DELHI: Shivangi Sarma , who won a silver medal each in 100m freestyle, 200m free style and 400m free style at the South Asia Games 2019, expressed that swimming has been given more importance in India in recent years. Sarma said it's good to see that the Indian government supports athletes financially.

Swimming has been given more importance in recent years. The government and administration are supporting all sports financially. An athlete incurs many expenses such as travel, lodging, etc., therefore, it is good that the government financially supports the athletes. said the swimmer.

I won two golds, two silver and a bronze medal in 2019 Khelo India Games . The competition was a great experience. I put my best performance in all my events. Since Assam is my home state and the next edition will take place in the state, I am preparing even more for the tournament and I want to make Assam proud, Sarma said.

The Assam swimmer had an important message for all Assam athletes, who will participate in the third edition of the competition.

I have worked hard in recent years. I am training well with my trainers. I would like to tell all of Assam's athletes, who will participate in the Indian Khelo Youth Games, who take pride in you and Assam, signed out of Sarma.
