In a recently-released video campaign for the Tokyo Olympics called #Cheer4India, Assam’s Dishita Barman was seen cheering for India’s men’s rifle shooting team headed for Tokyo Olympics.
Dressed in traditional Assamese attire, the 8-year-old says, “With pride in my mind and best wishes in my heart, I present to you our great shooting team. They are ready to take on the world and show what they are capable of. Let’s come together and celebrate their journey to Tokyo Olympics.”
Indian Shooting team comprises of Divyansh Singh Panwar (Men’s 10 m air rifle & mixed team), Deepak Kumar (Men’s 10 m air rifle & mixed team), Sanjeev Rajput (Men’s 50 m air rifle 3 positions), and Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar (Men’s 50 m rifle 3 positions).
Another campaign video of #Cheer4India featured Nyizang Palmu Bhutia from Sikkim, where she can be seen introducing the Indian archery team.
The Tokyo Games are scheduled to open on July 23 and conclude on August 8, and over 100 Indian athletes would be gunning for podium finishes at the showpiece, which was postponed by a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
