Congratulations on being appointed ambassador of the Indian Olympic Team! @BeingSalmanKhan. An absolute honour which comes with great responsibility.
Not to forget, Abhinav had even shared what he plans to do as the Goodwill ambassador. He said, "I have lived my life for the OG & have always done my best to work for the betterment of the Olympic movement in India & I will continue. While my focus will be to perform at Rio, I will be writing to every member of the Indian Olympic team & offering them any help they may want. Every Indian Olympian is a champion in his or her own right I would just be sharing my experiences with them! I would be open to doing this until the 15th of July & after that my focus will completely be towards my own performance until my event. Request every Indian citizen to whole heartedly support the INDIAN OLYMPIC TEAM #rio2016 #Indianolympicteam #indianolympiansarechampions."
