I have 2 sports that I am really passionate about.
Cycling: I have been working in Decathlon since almost 2 years, and this organisation has introduces me to a lot of sports. But this is one of the best. I started my journey in Pune as a sport leader for Badminton (which I used to practice a lot at that time). In decathlon while working for Badminton, I was introduced to Weekend community rides by Bipin & Gurpreet who were the sport leaders for cycling at that time. I still remember my first ride was 30K on a Rockrider MTB. I couldn't come to work that day. All of you cyclists would understand why. It was my first ride and "you know what" hurted like hell. Nevertheless this first ride got me into cycling. I was the most excited for the next weekend ride and the next 5 days flew by in anticipation.
I have come a long long way in two years now. Still working in Decathlon as a Sport Leader for Cycling (Doing what I love). Now I try to get more people to cycling and try to give them their first 30K.
I recently completed 160K on my road bike, and this time I could go to work after the 160K :P
Football remains the love of my life. Just like no one forgets their first love, I can never stop playing football. I have been playing it since the time i remember. It's such a beautiful game.
Football like meditation to me, I tend to forget about the world when I am playing.
I just have so many memories attached with this sport. Midnight football on the streets with a few friends, school ground with 50 people, 25 in a team. Competitive football at district tournament to playing with strangers.
This is one of the most powerful sport and over the years has united millions of people together atround the world.
