With the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting human life around the world, countless frontline workers risked their lives for the sake of others and spared no effort in fighting the deadly virus. Hence, in a bid to pay tribute and show respect to all the COVID warriors, the Indian men’s Hockey team captain Manpreet Singh, who will be taking part in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, has vowed to dedicate their performances to the true heroes of the country.
Midfielder Manpreet Singh said that his team will fight all the odds to win a medal for India at the Tokyo Olympics and dedicate it to the frontline workers of the country.
“As we work hard towards the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, we promise to fight all odds to win a medal for India. And if we do get a medal, we would like to dedicate it to the true heroes of our country – the doctors and frontline workers who have worked tirelessly to heal our country through these tough times and saved millions of lives. Thank you, Jai Hind,” stated Manpreet Singh in a video released by Hockey India.
With less than 40 days remaining for the Tokyo Olympics, the World No. 4 side continues to give their best and are leaving no stones unturned in their training at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) Centre in Bengaluru.
