Bhubaneswar, July 8: Not only medals, but Olympics qualification itself is a great feat, a rare milestone in a sports person's career. 

Odisha Government has been promoting sports and sportspersons in the last decade with lot of sincerity. To upkeep that tradition and encourage sportspersons to excel in their fields, Odisha Chief Minister Mohan Charan Majhi on Monday announced Rs 15 lakh each for hockey player Amit Rohidas and javelin thrower Kishore Jena. Both Rohidas and Jena would be representing India in the  Paris Olympics 2024.

While announcing the cash rewards for Rohidas and Jena, Odisha CM Majhi expressed hope that this will inspire the duo to perform excellently and bring glory to the country.

Lauding their Paris Olympics qualification, Majhi stated, "On behalf of the people of Odisha, I extend my best wishes and congratulations to both of them. I have full faith that their indomitable will, hard work, determination and hard work will inspire the young talents of the state. The financial support is an effort to encourage Javelin thrower Jena and hockey star Rohidas to participate in the Paris Olympics".

He further stated, "The people of Odisha have full faith in the capabilities of both of them. With the blessings of Lord Jagannath, the Chief Minister expressed the hope that both will glorify the state and the country by displaying their best sports skills in the Olympics".

Enumerating the potentials of sporting talents  of the state, Majhi stated, "There is no dearth of sports talents in Odisha".

He further assured that the BJP government in state is determined to provide the necessary infrastructure, financial support and all the facilities at the grassroots level for the all-round development of these talents from every corner of the state and to realize their dreams.

It is worth mentioning that Indian men's field hockey team won a Bronze medal in Tokyo Olympics after 41 years of Olympics medal drought in hockey. 

Similarly, Neeraj Chopra won the first ever athletics medal in Olympics as he clinched a Gold in Tokyo Olympics. Odisha's Kishore Jena will be competing alongside Chopra, to keep alive more than one Olympics medal in the javelin throw event in Paris Games.
