Ace Olympian boxer Mary Kom on Sunday said Indian real estate sector should have in-built sports infrastructure in housing projects to create a perfect platform for young athletes.
She was speaking at the unveiling of Boxing Ring for kids at Happy Trails project by ATS HomeKraft in Greater Noida (West).
"We need to focus on generating interest for sports along with the right infrastructure within the housing premises. Having sports infrastructure within one's society will help parents to introduce their kids to a variety of sports at a young age. This will greatly help in identifying raw talent at young age and with the right advice and coaching can grow to a professional level," Mary Kom said at the event.
"Sports is a critical aspect for holistic development of any child and we wanted to ensure that residents in our project get top class boxing facility for their children. It will help many children to learn and train within the safety and within and security of their homes," Prasoon Chauhan, CEO, HomeKraft said.
