New Delhi, 1 May 2012: Pro4Sport Solutions (P4SS), pioneers in high-performance sports coaching at the grassroots in India, has signed up British Paralympian David Wetherill as its high-performance mentor. Wetherill, who will be participating in his second Olympics in London this year, would be mentoring and inspiring young athletes training under the aegis of P4SS. The 22-year-old reached the quarter-finals in the 2008 Beijing Games and has been previously ranked number two in the world in his category in Table Tennis,
Elaborating about the association, P4SS Co-founder & Partner, Aman Dhall said, “We are delighted that Wetherill agreed to join our team. We are a young, energetic brand and he is a dynamic athlete, so for us he is a perfect fit for the role of a mentor. We intend to use our association with Wetherill to strengthen our brand image and visibility in India and globally.”
Commenting about the partnership, Wetherill said that he’s excited about the role and is looking forward to share his knowledge and experience of the game with young athletes in India. “It’s very important that a young athlete trains holistically and scientifically. Especially when an athlete is stepping up the ladder, he must be groomed to be self-driven and goal-oriented. I am quite happy about the prospect of sharing my knowledge with young audiences in India.”
Elaborating further details about the agreement, P4SS Co-founder & Partner, Suheil Tandon said that the benefits of the partnership would go beyond the two parties involved and help shape the Indian sport culture at large. “We are looking to stand as an innovator in the evolution of sports coaching in India. With this association, we also aim to educate not only young athletes, but also their parents, towards competitive sports. We want to create awareness that participation in competitive sport can have a profound effect on the outlook of youth towards other aspects of life.”
