Ranchi, October 13: Federation Internationale de Hockey (FIH) President Dato Tayyab Ikram said that there is an intention to hold the Olympics 2036 in India.
“There is a clear intention of holding the Olympics in India in 2036 and even different states want to bring more events apart from Hockey for the promotion of sports,” Ikram told reporters. He also went on to talk about the growth of sports in Jharkhand and how Chief Minister Hemant Soren and their plans are similar in nature about bringing in special athletes.
“Every event is very important, and Jharkhand and Ranchi have been centers for some international and league-level matches in India. It is very important to bring top-level tournaments here and I believe that the leadership in Jharkhand has very positive plans and that is why I have come here but I think promotion and development of sports are more important to us. Jharkhand Athletes have huge potential,” Ikram said.
“CM has the vision to have special athletes and even challenged athletes and even the FIH has similar plans as to how best it can help those children and individuals who need special attention and make valuable and ethical contributions and would like to work very closely with Jharkhand over this,” Ikram added.
