Sports teach discipline, endurance: Sh. Yudhvir Sethi

Taekwando Champions honoured for winning silver

BJP Vice President Yudhvir Sethi  said that sports teach discipline and endurance which is why everyone must take to any game of his or her choice and pursue it passionately. He was speaking after honouring young players who bagged silver in Common Wealth Taekwando championship 2017 held at Canada Montreal and returned to Jammu .

Yudhvir Sethi honoured three players who represented J&K under 30 years category and one who represented J&K above 30 years category. Those who bagged silver and were honoured include champions Narainder Singh, Anil Khajuria, Anchal Kumar and Atul Pangotra. These players had earlier also bagged medals for India in Taekwando Championships held in other places.

Speaking on the occasion Yudhvir Sethi said, “unlike many other youth activities, sports can provide instant feedback about how effective a choice was. A student athlete who practices instead of playing video games will improve faster than one who makes the opposite decision. Although this is also true of studying and academic performance, the gap between decision and report card time is often too long for a child to make a meaningful connection”.

Asking students to play sports instead of spending more time indoors, the BJP leader said discipline is one of the most effective tools people can use to reach their goals. Sports provide a vivid demonstration of how applying will and discipline during practice can help an athlete reach his/her goals in competition. Students who see discipline’s roles in achieving their athletic goals are more likely to apply discipline to other goals, he asserted.
