New Delhi, Aug 3:
Indian junior men’s hockey team core probable Arshdeep Singh wants to take a leaf out of senior player Ramandeep Singh’s book on how to manage injuries in his bid to seal a place in the national side.
The 19-year-old Singh missed out on the Six-Nation Championship in Spain last year due to a knee injury. He is inspired by the way Indian men’s hockey team forward Ramandeep has dealt with injuries in his international career.
“It was really disappointing to miss out on the Six-Nation Championship in Spain last year. However, I have realized that injuries will be a part and parcel of any sportsperson’s career. I look up to the way Ramandeep Singh has dealt with injuries in his career,” Singh said.
“He (Ramandeep)is an inspiration for all young hockey players in India. One needs a lot of determination to come back from injuries and now I know how important it is to ensure that I keep checking on how my body is reacting in every situation,” said the young forward in a Hockey India release.
