Clean Sports India's awareness run

Chennai: Clean Sports India will conduct its third awareness run in the city on September 26. The 3.5 km run will begin at 8 a.m. from Anna Salai and conclude at Queen Mary’s College.

Clean Sports is a civil society movement started by former India athletes such as Reeth Abraham and Ashwini Nachappa.

Addressing presspersons here on Thursday, Reeth Abraham said, “Sports today is being controlled by politicians, not sportspersons. Our aim is to bring all the former sportspersons together, make sports cleaner. We will only be telling the truth. Help us make a difference.”

On the issue of several Indian sportspersons failing drug tests, she said, “Many of our sportspersons are not properly educated. They do not realise the consequences. It is the failure of the system.”

Former Indian table tennis star V. Chandrasekar will be heading the run in Chennai.

He said, “This is a very necessary movement. We have to be cautious but do have to fight injustice. Because of the pressure from us, things could change.”

Former 400m runner Elvis Joseph also spoke.
