"My father used to say to achieve greatness in life you have to work hard, he wanted me to see as an accomplished wrestler. He made me train and train hard, I am chasing his dream and I hope to make him proud one day"
- Sandeep Malik, 17-year-old upcoming wrestler

Sandeep's story is of sheer grit, perseverance and finding his passion. The 17-year-old young boy is giving it all to see himself in an Indian wrestling Jersey.

Living in a pension of his deceased father who had seen a dream of watching his son wrestle at the Olympics, Sandeep is giving all his heart to wrestling.

With 800 Push Ups Sandeep Starts His Day 

To become a professional wrestler and to always stay on top of his game. Sandeep undergoes a grueling 4 hours shift for his training twice a day.

His training includes 800 push-ups, series of bouts and many other exercises which help him build his agility and strength.

"In the initial days, it was my father who encouraged me to take up wrestling and he used to ensure it went for training at a local Akhara in my village." - Sandeep

Hadn't been Sandeep's Mother, He would have quit wrestling long back.

Sandeep lost his father 2 years back, since his father was the only earning member in the family. It became extremely difficult to manage expenses of the family. Due to lack of funds, Sandeep had a hard time continuing his training and maintaining his diet. Eventually, he lost the motivation and thought of quitting wrestling.

His mother gave all her support and encouraged him to continue and funded his passion through whatever money she received as a pension of her deceased husband.

The family still struggles to arrange funds for other expenses and a support to Sandeep will definitely boost the morale of the young athlete and help him perform at his best.
Why should you contribute?

Sandeep currently requires 15 thousand per month for his training and maintaining his diet. Sandeep merely manages to arrange 5-6 thousand from the pension and with such limited money he would not be able to get the desired results with his performance.

With you support Sandeep will be able to train for the next one year without facing any financial difficulties by collecting 150000.
With your contribution, Sandeep may find a place in the national team and may make us proud by bringing medals to the country.
