Energy drink giant Dabur India today selected seven young athletes from across India as part of its 'Ab Daudega Hindustan' campaign and will now fund their training to help them excel at national and international sports competitions.
The seven deserving young athletes are Sayali Mhaishune, Avnee Rawat, Ujala, Shabnam, Vikas, Mohammed Meraj and Jainabaj. These athletes will be provided world-class coaching under the guidance of Ashwini Nachappa in Ashwini Nachappa Foundation.
The Dabur Glucose-D Ab Daudega Hindustan initiative sought to identify capable sporting talent at the grassroots and nurture them in their pursuit for success. Under this initiative, a series of on-ground activation were conducted across cities in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and West Bengal to identify the talented athletes.
Dabur had received an overwhelming 8,000 entries from across India. An independent sports panel screened the potential athletes from these entries, and shortlisted 350 athletes, who participated in the national camp held in Delhi.
