Indian Kho Kho Team taking part in First International Kho Kho Championship
Congratulations to the Indian Kho Kho Team to First International Kho Kho Championship in England from 1st to 4th September 2018. The Union Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports (I/C) Col Rajyavardhan Rathore has approved the participation with financial support from the Government of India. This is the first time when the financial support is being given to the Kho Kho team for participation in the international event. Until now the sports like Kho Kho which are categorized as ‘Others’ are not eligible for financial support for participation in the International sporting events.
The decision to provide financial support to the Kho Kho Federation of India for participation in the First International Kho Kho Championship in England has been taken with a view not only to give fillip to this traditional Indian sports and sportspersons but also to pave the way for its future mainstreaming at the International level and its possible inclusion in multi-disciplinary sporting events like the Asian Games, Commonwealth Games, Olympics, etc.
