“Our ministry will assist and fund states in their endeavour to achieve excellence in one or two sports. States can also choose to train athletes in other sports but the focus should be on one or two disciplines with the Khelo India State Centres of Excellence (KISCEs) becoming nodal centres,” Rijiju said.
