The 28-year-old shooter Shreyasi Singh, who won a gold medal in the women’s double trap at the Commonwealth Games 2018, is spending quality time with her family in Delhi amid the lockdown. “The lockdown has given me enough time to be with my family, which is not possible during normal days. I always used to travel a lot for competitions and training,” she said.
The young shooter makes sure to work according to her plans during the lockdown so that it doesn’t get monotonous. Shreyasi said, “I have been working out and doing a lot of dry practice at home to utilize this time well. Every day, I try to find new and interesting techniques which might help me win future championships. Besides, I take up activities like painting, cooking, singing, playing board games, meditation, reading books and watching movies to engage myself.”
Shreyasi thanked all the Covid-19 warriors including doctors, nurses, hospital staffs, cleanliness, sanitation workers and all those who are working selflessly during these testing times. “Our country is going through a very tough phase. I feel very sad seeing so many people suffering. This is the time to contribute to our nation in whichever way we can. My family and I have personally gone out of our way to help all those who got in touch with us. This is also the time to thank those people who are working for us day and night,” she said.
She also requested people to not get complacent with the relaxation of the lockdown rules. She said, “Please stay home and stay safe; the war against Covid-19 is not over yet.”
