Rahul Dravid will be a key member of the sports non-profit organisation — GoSports Foundation. Dravid announced his association with GoSports here on Monday.
The former Indian captain hopes to contribute towards the development of Indian junior Olympic and Paralympic athletes. Dravid will join the Board of Advisors of GoSports that also features 2008 Olympics gold medallist-shooter Abhinav Bindra.
Meanwhile, Dravid will institute a ‘Rahul Dravid Athlete Mentorship’ program that will guide high-potential athletes through their career. “Winning at sport is as much about processes as it is about outcomes and I feel that we must put in place programmes that address the most important needs of young sportsmen and sportswomen as they prepare for competition. I have seen the pride and joy that success at sports brings and I want to participate in the lives and journeys of our young Olympians and Paralympians,” Dravid said through a press-release.
Dravid is expected to a host a charity dinner later in February and also deliver a keynote address at the GoSports Foundation Athlete’s Conclave.
