Extending his best wishes to the team, the Governor said, “We need to keep our minds and hearts young. We should develop our thinking and perception in a way that no goal seems too big.”

Lt-General Singh noted that all the players of the Masters Sports are above 60 years of age and are implementing the Fit India Movement. He wanted all citizens to be always conscious about sports and health. The Governor said that he was very impressed after meeting all the players. Such passion towards sports at this age would act as an inspiration for the youth. He was also introduced to all the players.
