JAMMU, Nov 8: BJP Vice President, Yudhvir Sethi today said that sports inculcates discipline and develops endurance which is why everyone must take sports of his or her choice and pursue it passionately.
He was speaking after honouring young players who bagged silver in Commonwealth Taekwondo Championship 2017 held at Canada Montreal recently and returned back to Jammu today.
Yudhvir Sethi honoured three players who represented J&K in under-30 years’ category and one who represented J&K in above-30 years’ category.
Those who bagged silver and were honoured included champions Narinder Singh, Anil Khajuria, Anchal Kumar and Atul Pangotra. These players had earlier also bagged medals for India in Taekwondo Championships held in other places.
Speaking on the occasion Yudhvir Sethi said, “Unlike many other youth activities, sports can provide instant feedback about how effective a choice was. A student athlete who practices instead of playing video games will improve faster than one who makes the opposite decision”.
Asking students to play sports instead of spending more time indoors, the BJP leader said discipline is one of the most effective tools people can use to reach their goals, adding Sports provide a vivid demonstration of how applying will and discipline during practice can help an athlete reach his/her goals in competition.
