Shillong, Jan 4: Stressing on making Northeast as great sporting region, Union Minister of State Youth Affairs & Sports, etc Kiren Rijiju, today inaugurated the Synthetic Athletic Track and Field and the Synthetic Football Ground at SAI Training Centre, NEHU Campus, Shillong.

Union Minister of State for Youth Affairs & Sports, Kiren Rijiju said he wanted to convert the Sports Authority of India (SAI) training centre at NEHU campus as a centre of excellence and a hub for higher altitude training for athletics.

The minister of state also announced his decision to convert the centre as one of the finest SAI training centre which can be a hub for higher altitude training.

“This place is not very high in terms of altitude but sufficient enough to be declared as a high altitude training centre,” he said.

“It may be closed to 5,000 feet or may be slightly below that but this is very appropriate and this can be a permanent location because normally high altitude training centre are temporary in nature but this location is very appropriate to be a permanent centre as well as certain athletes can come here for acclimatization to be trained in the higher altitude,” Rijiju added.

“We have very few high altitude centres in India. I am planning to have few more.. may be in Meghalaya, may be in Arunachal Pradesh and Aizawl,” he added.
