Army Sports Institute was established Established in 2001, to spearhead the Nation’s campaign for Olympic Glory, Army Sports Institute, Pune has succeeded in achieving many milestones. Entrusted with onerous task of reaching a podium finish in Olympic Games in seven selected sporting disciplines, as part of the Mission Olympic Programme, the Institute is firmly on track to accomplish this task.
I take this opportunity to reiterate the heavy responsibility that rests on the shoulders of the team of Officers, JCOs and Other Ranks who are currently part of this prestigious institution. The nation has created world class facilities in your selected sports in the sulabrious climate of Pune, provided you with the best possible equipment, diet, coaching and sports medicine support at considerable cost, despite the perennial shortage of funds plaguing all aspects of life in our developing country. In turn, the nation and the Indian Army have only one expectation from you – Train Hard and Win Olympic Glory.
I assure you that the Indian Army Will stand behind you like a rock to support you in all your endeavours so that you are not disadvantaged in any way in comparison to your rivals in the international arena. I am sanguine that with the devotion, focus and grit that the sports person & their trainers/managers have displayed all these years, the moment is not far when Army Sports Institute will bring home the coveted Olympic Gold.
God Bless and God Speed.
