I congratulate Vasco Sports Club for conducting this race annually. I wish them the best and hope they continue to successfully conduct this event," Suresh Raina.
Shifting focus from running, Raina mentioned that former Indian coach Anil Kumble was responsible for the success of Kuldeep Yadav after the young bowler’s rapid rise as a match-winning bowler.
Yadav is a product of Anil Kumble. I guess all credit goes to Anil bhai. He worked really hard with him and he has done so much for him. I strongly feel that Yadav will change everything in the bowling department. He will become India’s main strike bowler as he has already done well for UP, he’s done well in the U-19 World Cup and you’ll see him shining very soon," Raina on Kuldeep Yadav.
Kavita Tungar, who is one of Skechers Elite Athlete was glad to be the Brand Ambassador of the shoe manufacturer.
It is important to be on top of my running and glad to be participating in the Skechers Performance Goa River Marathon, which has now become a global platform for all the professional athletes for long distance events,” Arjuna Awardee Kavita.
