Rijiju expects the best tour in Tokyo, but has his sights set on the 2028 Olympics 

Newsjizz , Dec 11, 2019

Minister of Sports Kiren Rijiju He expects the best delivery of medals from the athletes of the country at the Tokyo Olympics, but warned that the blame would fall on all concerned if India does not present a good show at the 2028 Games.

Rijiju said eight years should be enough for India to prepare as well as possible for the Los Angeles Olympics.

If we cannot prepare for something so far away (Los Angeles Olympics 2028), then we have to blame ourselves in terms of policy formulation, set a direction and channel resources, Rijiju said at the 2019 FICCI Global Turf Sports Summit .

With the time we have in our hands, we must ensure that India is no longer a country that is not taken seriously in the Olympic Games. I will definitely not be satisfied as the country's sports minister if we don't win medals. he said.

The minister said that the Tokyo Olympics of the year of the nest are the immediate goal, but that infrastructure needs to be established for future athletes to perform well.

Tokyo is an immediate goal with existing talent. We cannot create champions overnight. It is not possible to create world champions in a year or two. We have to make sure that all the infrastructure is in place, Rijiju said.

That said, we have certain existing talents at our disposal and we have to make the most of it. I hope Tokyo 2020 is a good platform for India to have the best Olympic performance, but we have limitations. However, there is nothing to stop us from Paris in 2024 and especially at the Los Angeles Olympics in 2028, which are over 8 years old, he added.

Rijiju also stressed the need to do well in international sporting events.

As a young nation, we cannot afford to delay ourselves in the international level of competition, whether in the Olympic Games, the Asian Games or in any of the world championships.

We are a young nation, so we have to set an ambitious goal. At the meeting with IOA (national Olympic body) and NSF (sports federations), I had given them a very ambitious goal. It is not easy but not impossible, he said.

We are going up. In the last six months, our ranking and performance have increased. Most of the results I have calculated are the best, he said.
