It has been a memorable moment for me to do mat training with her. This league has taught us to compete with the international level athletes and has also boosted our moral but the experience of getting back into the game and winning despite of losing, has been taught by great efforts to me by my coach.”
Sakshi wants that every team should open their coaching camps before the beginning of PWL so that every Indian wrestler should get an opportunity to learn from Olympic medalist. The Indian wrestlers can curtail their weakness. She reckons that these camps should not be opened for just a formality.
