Virdhawal Khade looking at Commonwealth Games as a stepping stone for Asian Games medalMarch 19, 2018
India’s champion swimmer Virdhawal Khade is looking to gear up for this year’s Commonwealth Games. He believes that he will perform well there. With champion swimmers from Australia in the fray, chances of a medal are slim, but the 26-year-old is confident of bagging a medal in the Asian Games at Jakarta.
Khade is a government official with the postal department and recently has gone back to his swimming regime. “I will be participating in the Commonwealth Games in 50m freestyle and butterfly. Training has been going very well since the past few months and I am keeping an eye on medal at the Asian Games. I am sure the Commonwealth games will give me a good platform to test myself and prepare for the Asian Games,” Khade said.
He is India’s youngest Olympian in the sport of swimming. Also in his cabinet is a bronze medal from the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games.
