This year the 20th edition of the Common Wealth Games is being held at Glasgow which will see close to 5000 athletes from 71 nations of the erstwhile British Empire compete with each other. There are 215 athletes participating from India. Vaikundarajan is really happy for India as Sukhen Dey and K Sanjita Chanu from India stole the limelight by clinching gold each in weightlifting. India also won 3 silver and 2 bronze medals shares Vaikundarajan.
Vaikundarajan really feels proud of the fact that on the very first day of the Common Wealth Games India showed up such a great performance. Vaikundarajan also believes that this is just the beginning and he has high expectations from Indian athletes that they will do our Country proud at such a big international platform. However, Vaikundarajan suggests that the athletes should not get overconfident because that might lead to their downfall very soon. It’s a long journey and to be successful in the entire event as a Country India should perform consistently adds Vaikundarajan.
