Bipasha Basu sponsers training of an Athlete for the upcoming 'Special Olympics'

The international multi-sport event involves athletes with a range of physical disabilities and takes place in two parts - Winter and Summer Paralympic Games. According to sources, Bipasha will be financing the required training facilities to one the Indian athletes participating in the 2020 Paralympic games to be held in Tokyo, Japan.

The name of the athlete has not been revealed yet, but it is said the athlete would be a runner.

According to the source, Bipasha is really willing to look over the complete training to provide the said athlete a deserving chance at the next International Paralympics.

We all know how almost every sports-person in India, beyond the realm of cricket, suffers from the lack of facilities and poor training provisions leading to unsatisfactory performances in almost all international sporting events.

It is great to see, someone who has the resources to provide help, willing to take up the responsibility that might change an athlete's life.

Well done, Bipasha!
