Kamalpreet Kaur, Shaili Singh and Priyanka Goswami will look to build on an impressive season with IOS Sports
The year 2021 has one filled with tremendous performances from the stunning trio of Kamalpreet Kaur, Shaili Singh and Priyanka Goswami. Priyanka, hailing from Uttar Pradesh, stunned the nation as she won the Indian Racewalking Championship 2021 with a national record timing to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics. She led the 20km race walk event for the first 8km before finishing 17th in Tokyo.
Kamalpreet Kaur came to the fore during the Indian Grand Prix 4 in Patiala earlier this year. She broke her own national record ahead of the Tokyo Games. On the big stage, Kamalpreet qualified for the finals becoming only the second athlete to breach the automatic qualification mark. The discus thrower from Punjab finished sixth in the final.
“As an athlete, it’s always very important to have an uncompromised focus on your training while other aspects of a professional athlete’s career also need a specialized focus. To manage that you not only need experience but a trustworthy team and I couldn’t think of anyone better than IOS Sports & Entertainment for that role, given their specialized focus and track record,” said Kamalpreet Kaur in a statement.
The youngest member of the roster, Shaili Singh has shone the brightest this season. The 17-year-old bagged the silver medal at the U20 World Championships barely missing the gold medal. Shaili holds national records in multiple age categories which include U20, U18 and U16 categories. She has been a gold medalist both at the U20 as well as at the Senior Women Championship held earlier in 2021.
