[ClickPress, Fri Mar 23 2007] Even as the Indian corporate world continues to ignore all sports beyond cricket, Sabeer Bhatia promoted travel portal, Arzoo.com has decided to step in as world boxing champion M C Mary Kom’s sponsor. Arzoo intends to promote talent in Indian sports and thereby contribute towards the cause of helping India meet its goals in sport. This move from Arzoo amply clarifies its intentions, as the contract with the boxing sensation was signed even before the semi finals of the 4th World Women Boxing Championship in New Delhi.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Yogesh Patel, COO of Arzoo.com said, “The arrangement is in tune with our philosophy of encouraging champion sportspeople from India in disciplines other than Cricket. Even in the past, our CEO Mr. Sabeer Bhatia has been one of the patrons of the Indian hockey team.”
“Mary Kom has a fantastic track record as a three time World Champion, but is not receiving due recognition of her talent. We are hopeful that with our support she will get greater international exposure to fine tune her skills further,” Mr. Patel added.
Apart from the sponsorship amount, Arzoo.com would also provide the travel kit, which will include certain number of apparels like t-shirt, track suit etc, as a part of the sponsorship deal.
Silver medal winner in the World Championship in USA in 2001, her first international exposure spurred Mary on to greater heights. Mary Kom won gold in the world championship in Turkey in 2002, followed by two Asian championships in 2003 and 2005. She successfully defended her title in the 2005 World Championship in Moscow, and completed a hat-trick at the recently concluded 4th World Championship in New Delhi, in front of an adoring home crowd.
