  3. It is an excellent inspiration for choosing the best delicate from the huge potential available in & around the rural areas those are really need to enter in the expensive platform. Many of them are not in a position to thing to prove their skill & strength because of their poverty & social & economic aspects. Yes, GAIL has really providing a stage to target for securing medals in athletics at Tokyo Olympics 2020.

    good effort but we are not seeing its ad on mass media ,how people will come to know about the selection trials.Please take help of media like TV etc

  6. please spread the word around. we have send posters to the zonal offices. we are sending mails as well elated to the event. please send to all poeple whom you know such that maximum exposure of the event happens

  7. It is an excellent idea for identifying prospective Olympic medal winner. We may consider advertising the same in local media a week befor for enhanced participation.

    More publicity and advertising efforts are needed from the event managers to find out the talents from villages/tahseel/district level. Present efforts put by the event management company seems to be inadequate in this regard. After all the aim of the events is to find out the sprinters of Ussain Bolt level. Do with such hurried action can be find out the hidden talent like Ussain Bolt?
