Jhajjar: Sunil Dabas, coach of Asiad gold medal winning Indian Women Kabbadi Team, was today felicitated at her native village Mohammadpur Majra in Jahajgarh, here on Saturday.
The function was organised by the residents of the village and Rohtak MP Deepender Hooda was the chief guest.
Addressing the gathering, Sunil said it was due to blessing of her parents, coaches and well-wishers that she succeeded in achieving the top level.
"Indian Women Kabbadi Team had won five gold medals except Asiad in different international events but it is the first time when me and my players received such a warm welcome from the government.
"Really, the state government has formed an inspiring sport policy which is not only helping the budding players polish their talent but also motivating them to display their sport skill at higher level," said the coach.
There was no dearth of sport talent in Haryana but what was required was basic facilities to upcoming players for making them technically sound, she said, adding that the state government had been providing full opportunity to the players by providing all basis facilities.
"The state government has been taking a number of steps to promote sports and those initiatives have started showing fruitful results," said Hooda.
