What they say

Sportstar - - GEN­NEXT LAKSHYA RAJ POONIA -

Kr­ishna Poo­nia (mother, Olympian): The signs are good. He has im­proved a lot in the last one and a half year. I was with him in the US last year and in­ter­acted with his coaches, who felt that he has po­ten­tial and is al­ways will­ing to learn. This year, he has been able to per­form bet­ter. I don’t want to put him un­der pres­sure. As an ath­lete, I know what it takes to mo­ti­vate a young­ster. We just hope he plays his nat­u­ral game and im­proves grad­u­ally.

Manny Zer­man (men­tor): Lak­shya has im­proved as a golfer since I have known him. The fu­ture is go­ing to be a mat­ter of how much hard work he puts in. He has a bright fu­ture ahead of him. I look for­ward to his con­tin­ued progress.
