Kohli, Goenka launch RP-SG Indian sports honours

New Delhi: The RP-SG Indian Sports Honours is dedicated to rewarding excellence in the field of sports. These Sports Awards will also help identify and support athletes with potential and award them scholarships.
Virat Kohli and Sanjiv Goenka have jointly partnered to create this platform to honour exceptional performances, in line with their vision to support the development of Indian sports. These Awards are special as Sports Journalists, Sporting Legends and the fans will be coming together to reward their heroes.
"India has made rapid strides as a sporting nation. The days of being a one-sport country are behind us. The time is just right to introduce an institution that will recognise and reward our top sporting achievers and put the spotlight on those who are expected to do the country proud in the years to come," Virat Kohli, India's cricket captain, said at the launch of the RP-SG Indian Sports Honours, in a media conference held at the Taj Mansingh, New Delhi, on Friday.
This annual celebration of Indian Sport has been conceptualised and will be executed by Cornerstone Sport, a Mumbai based Sports marketing agency. Sanjiv Goenka, Chairman, RP-SG Group, said: "What makes the RP-SG Indian Sports Honours unique is the direct involvement of the premier stakeholders of Indian Sport – the sportspersons themselves, legends who have excelled at the highest level, the fans and the sports media. Apart from the recipients who will be shortlisted and decided by the SJFI and Advisory Council respectively, there will be 'Popular Choice' awards whose winners will be picked directly by the fans.
In one of the segments of the awards ceremony, promising Indian athletes with the potential to excel in global events of the near future will be awarded scholarships by the Virat Kohli Foundation in association with the RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group.
