‘My biggest dream is to win an Asian Games medal,’ says World Junior Archery Championship gold medallist Sukhbeer Singh

World Junior Archery Championship gold medallist Sukhbeer Singh, who is currently preparing for the third edition of Khelo India Youth Games, expressed that his biggest dream is to win a medal at the Asian Games. Since Sukhbeer Singh competes in the compound event, he cannot dream of an Olympic medal.

“I am currently preparing for the third edition of the Khelo India Youth Games. My immediate goal is to join the Indian senior team for the World Cup in April. The trials will take place later this year. My biggest dream is to win a medal at the Asian Games. Unfortunately, the compound event is not hosted at the Olympics,” said Sukhbeer Singh.

Sukhbeer, who played the second edition of the Khelo India Youth Games, lauded the tournament saying that the environment in the competition was very good.

“I played the second edition of the Khelo India Youth Games. The tournament was great. The environment in the competition was very good. The Khelo India Youth Games helps the youth athletes to prepare for the other tournaments as well,” said the 20-year-old.

The archer, who hails from Ferozepur City, Punjab, ranks the World Junior Archery Championship gold as his best achievement so far.

“My biggest achievement has been the gold medal at the World Junior Archery Championship. Raginee Markoo and I won the gold in the mixed team compound event. In the same tournament, I was part of the bronze medal-winning men’s compound team. I was part of the gold medal-winning men’s compound team in senior nationals in 2019 as well,” said Sukhbeer.

The 20-year-old said that he was introduced to archery by his elder brother who was also a senior national champion.

“I saw my elder brother practice archery and then he introduced me to the sport. My brother was a senior national champion. My father is a farmer. It’s difficult for my family to provide equipment for my game, but they have supported me fully and provide all the equipment I need,” signed off Sukhbeer.

License Works ready to pull back the curtains and unleash Carrera Jeans in India

Great news to start the new year for denim fans in India. LicensingSource.Net our partners in the UK are reporting that the brand which was founded by 3 brothers in Verona in 1965, is now available in India through its local partner LicenseWorks.

Carrera Jeans originally inspired by the Carrera Panamerica – a border to border race in sedans & sports cars held on open roads back in 1927, then considered one of the deadliest on the planet, similar to the Mille Miglia and the Targa Florio held in Italy in 1906.

They have a spiffy looking website but one wonders why a denim brand doesn’t get its models to stand on their hands? (as the product needs to be the hero not the models mug)

As per Indiaretailing.com’s 2017 report – The market size of Indian Denim Wear was estimated to be Rs 20,205 crore in 2016. The market is now projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.5 per cent and reach Rs 39,651 crore by 2021, and Rs 77,999 crore market by 2026.

We wish them all the success here!
