Un­leash­ing the Killer In­stinct

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

The IOA nam­ing ac­tor Sal­man Khan as the good­will am­bas­sador for the Rio Olympics has drawn crit­i­cism from Olympians, in­clud­ing wrestler Yo­gesh­war Dutt, leg­endary ath­lete Milkha Singh and hockey wizard Dhan­raj Pil­lay. Pray, what can the ac­tor do to mo­ti­vate the ath­letes to raise the bar at an event that is con­sid­ered the great­est sport­ing spec­ta­cle? Khan, ac­cused of oc­ca­sional al­co­holism and of killing some an­i­mals apart from a poor man, may prob­a­bly un­leash ‘the killer in­stinct’ in our sports­men and women.
