Don't get bogged down by expectations, PM Modi wishes athletes luck ahead of Tokyo Olympics
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday interacted with the Olympic-bound contingent who would be looking to make the country proud at the upcoming Tokyo Games, begng July 23.
"During my last Mann ki Baat, I talked about you (Deepika Kumari) and the other athletes. You are now the world number one in rankings, the world would love to know about your journey. I know in your childhood, you used to aim at mangoes," said PM Modi during the session.
莫迪总理在会上说：“在我上次的Mann ki Baat广播节目期间，我谈到了你(迪皮卡·库马里)和其他运动员。你现在是世界排名第一，全世界都想知道你的旅程。我知道你小时候曾瞄准树上的芒果练射箭。”
"When you reach such a level at the big stage, expectations are obviously there from you. The country is confident that you will make the nation proud at the upcoming Games," he added.
Talking to javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra, PM Modi said: "I have been told that you got injured, but still you created a new record. You don't need to get bogged down by expectations, don't take the burden of expectations, just focus on your goal.
Replying to PM Modi, Neeraj said: "I am focusing on my game, anything I want, the go nment is hel me in that. We have a limited career, because of injury, I lost some time but I was fully focused on the Olympics. Because of Covid-19, the Olympics got postponed but I kept on preparing for the event."
A great gesture by PM to improve the morale of the athletes. During Congress days only the relatives of po iticians and connected people could get to go to such games as either athletes or as spectators to enjoy a free foreign trip.
how much does the country have to suffer more under this liar?

Ordinarily I wouldn't mind a PM interacting with athletes and giving them GYAN, but when it comes to an incompetent and arrogant Gujarati CHOR like Modi, I prest this act. The Indian economy is worse than Bangladesh, 240 millions have entered poverty as a result of pandemic, there are no jobs in India and majority of Indians are barely scra through
stop these publicity n work for the nation, people r dying n this jokers r just doing advertisement, when he ll talk about petrol rate, inflation, unemployment, girls safety, dead body on ganga etc etc, stop this useless activity.
Win at least 50 medals with 10 gold bhai log. do your best! Focus on bettering your best. Rest is left to luck. Nation is behind you! Cheers!
Indirectly saying dont expect anything from him as well.
Wish all of them Good luck.
In the same way as, the public had great expectations from him.
i always notice one thing off late , anything Modi ji talks, does, there are many critics getting ready to demoralise him and by doing so, they forget one thing that indirectly they demotivate the entire nation.
It will be much better if PM interacts with general public for knowing their hardships under increasing petrol prices and food related items going out of control. This show business of Photo sessions can wait.
WE COULD EASILH GET GOLD MEDAL IN.
Now that he has cheered up, Modi should be given all credit if any of our athletes win any medal. Whatever all the best team India...

我知道出于善意，东京会像上次那样给印度3 - 4枚奖牌!
There are no expectations.We will be happy if we win 4-5 medals.
