Sports like skating, which involves walking and running on wheels has fascinated enthusiasts across the globe. Just Play Sportz recently had an opportunity to experience skating skills of two young enthusiast skaters, Kanishka and Milan along with their Coach, Jairaj in Gurgaon.
Skating Coach, Jairaj has been nurturing talent in skating from last 16 years. He has been associated with DAV School, Sector -14, Gurgaon and has also been taking skating classes at Leisure Valley Park, Gurgaon.
It was completely delightful to watch Kanishka and Milan zipping past us on their skating wheels on a cold, foggy winter morning at Leisure Park with a lot of enthusiasm. While interacting with Coach Jairaj, we learned that one of his students has recently won Gold & Silver Medal in Special Olympics and going to receive a cash reward of Rs. 1Cr.
Talking to Kanishka, a student of Amity School, Gurgaon and Milan, a student of Gyandeep Public School, Gurgaon we learnt that both of them along with the other kids who come to learn skating from Coach, Jairaj feels good about improving their skills and the training under him has helped them to win medals at different competitive levels.
Kanishka wants to continue her passion for skating along with her studies. Kanishka in her own words shared, “Skating as an active sport has helped her to focus on her studies also.” Kanishka also complimented her mother’s efforts for encouraging and supporting her to pursue her passion for skating. On an emotional note, she mentioned, “I want to fulfill my father’s wish to win a medal in National Championship.”
Milan also has won numerous medals at different levels of competitions in school and at the state level. He also complimented the efforts of his father in helping him to pursue his passion for Skating by waking him up early morning for his skating classes. Milan is just hoping for better facilities at his school for sports so that enthusiasts like him can pursue their respective interest in sports.
On an emotional and positive note, JPS team wished both Kanishka and Milan to win century medals each and reach to newer heights in the world of skating.
