“Stay fit and stay safe. Don’t let your body catch the virus or fatigues.” Said Olympian Ashish Chaudhary. Earlier this year, Ashish Chaudhary booked his ticket to Tokyo Olympics 2020 after defeating Maikhel Muskita in the Quarter-Finals by unanimous decision in the Olympic Boxing Qualifier for Asia/Oceania, taking place in Amman, Jordan. Ashish came back victoriously from Jordon and went straight to his home Sundernagar, Himachal Pradesh only to know that he will have a wait a little more to fulfill his dream of winning an Olympic medal.
The COVID-19 outbreak has lead to several delays in the world of sports and the biggest sporting event of the planet has been delayed to another year. The Olympics have been scheduled for 2021. On asking him about this, he said “It’s really sad to know about the number of people dying in the world due to COVID-19 but our government is trying hard to save people from it and we should follow the guidelines strictly to support our government and stay safe.” Also, he added that “It’s a good opportunity for athletes like us because now we have one more year to train ourselves for the World’s biggest sporting event.” It is good to see that the Olympian Boxer has already started practicing with minimal sources to stay fit as well as keep his touch going on for the future event. Ashish has been following the guidelines and has been training hard at home.
