Haryana Government includes Deaflympics in its sports policy
Haryana Government has decided to include Deaflympics in its Sports Policy in order to boost the morale of differently-abled sportspersons in the state.
Decision in this regard was taken during a state cabinet meet chaired by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
With this inclusion, Deaflympian medalists now will be able to get cash rewards, jobs and other benefits from the state government.
The Deaflympics (previously called World Games for the Deaf and International Games for the Deaf) are an International Olympic Committee (IOC) sanctioned event, at which deaf athletes compete at an elite level.
