Launch of the “8 AM Sports Diet Scholarship”

Itanagar, October 27: The ‘8 AM Sports Diet Scholarship-2022’, an initiative of the NGO Helping Hands (HH), sponsored by VR Industries Private Limited (VRIPL) based in Gurgaon, has been launched by Education Minister and Arunachal Olympic Association (AOA) Taba Tedir in The formal banquet hall is here on Thursday.

He praised Tadeer Bismu, and in particular its Chairman Robin Hebow, “for the pioneering creativity and sponsors” and said that “the enormous sporting potential of Arunachal Pradesh is well known.

He said, “The 17-member small state team set a record in the 36th National Games, which was held recently in Ahmedabad in Gujarat, by winning seven medals, while the states that participated with 300 to 400 players tied immediately.”

“Thus, Prime Minister Bima Khandu paid cash prizes of Rs 3,000 and Rs 2,000 to the gold and silver medal winners, respectively,” he added.

“Although the state government has notified its sports policy, prioritizing eight sports disciplines, various cash incentives and a 5 per cent reservation on all government jobs and 10 per cent for the police department, concern about the need for nutritious food items for players to play well will be addressed. Solve it with this grant, runs said.

He congratulated the winners and urged the state’s athletes to “prepare to play with commitment at the upcoming second Northeastern Olympic Games, scheduled for October 30 to November 6, and to win as many medals as possible.”

“This grant will help transform Arunachal into a sports house in India,” Tadir added.

The Hibu chief said that “the state team came to Delhi a few years ago for a national sports tournament, when the coach, after interacting with the players, gave a bad impression about their diet, saying that it affected their performance.”

“It is a fact that the Near East players are talented despite the lack of sports infrastructures and proper training. Good players always make a good impression,” he said.

Telling Hibu that VRIPL was supplying food to Army, Navy and Indian Air Force personnel, Hibu said that “the diet will reach the homes of awardees every month”.

He said, “Although 50 players from all the northeastern states of the country were selected through a rigorous process in accordance with Olympic guidelines, particularly those who achieved their marks in state, regional and national sporting events, the 31 winners are from Arunachal,” adding that “money , if given, could be abused, which was decided to be offered as a nutritious diet plus Rs 1001 each.”

Urging the athletes to maintain discipline, he hoped that “Arunachal will soon produce Olympians such as Mary Kom and Borgohen”.

VRIPL CEO Kush Lakhanpal has announced the introduction of supplements to students of Sangey Lhaden Sports Academy (SLSA) in Chimpu.

Forty girls and 40 boys from SLSA attended, including a few award recipients.

“Instead of having fun, you are expected to prove your competence in national and world events to win gold medals,” said athletic director Tadar Aba, adding that “you should make every effort and the department will provide every possible help.”

AOA Secretary General Bamang Tago said that “the scholarship bears an unwavering responsibility on all award recipients to prove themselves in their respective disciplines.”

Horticultural Minister Koç Reinya stated that Hibu “has exceeded his call of duty to promote athletes in the Middle East,” “it becomes the responsibility of the awardees to prove their worth, as they will be under constant scrutiny.”
