Asian Games 2018: Bronze medalist Seema Punia does something incredible for Kerala flood victims


XtraTime Web Desk:
Asian Games bronze medal winner discus thrower Seema Punia has done an exceptional thing and has announced that she will donate her entire pocket money of $700 and an additional 1 lakh to help the flood-affected people of Kerala.

The 35-year-old Seema could not defend the gold she had won in the 2014 Asian Games and had to be settled with a bronze with a best throw of 62.26m. Seema, also, urged other athletes to make donations to help the people of Kerala affected by the devastating flood.

“I have decided to donate my pocket money and also a lakh more to Kerala flood victims. They have gone through a lot. I will go and try to serve those people. I also urge all Indian athletes to donate at least half of their allowance to help the victims,” Seema told reporters after her event.
