The Olympics are just around the corner. The event that whets the appetite of every sports fan is all set to kick off in London on Friday, July 27th. And no one seems to be more excited than MTV VJ turned actor Rannvijay Singh. The ‘Action Replayy’ star is an avid enthusiast who follows a multitude of sports, including football, cricket and basketball. Not too many people know that the ‘Roadies’ host was in fact a national level basketball player at one point of time. “I follow the US Basketball team whenever I get the time. Lebron James, Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony are just awesome to watch, especially on one team”, says Rannvijay. And what about the Indian contingent led by Sushil Kumar, Vijender Singh and Saina Nehwal. “I’m a patriot through and through. So I’ll always be rooting for these guys. I think we stand a good chance to win medals when it comes to shooting, wrestling and badminton. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for tennis and hockey too. I’m quite sure all these guys will make us proud,” adds Rannvijay. Like most of us, Rannvijay also fondly remembers Abhinav Bindra winning India’s first gold medal at the Beijing Olympics. His words undoubtedly echo the sentiments of every Indian sports fan. If all goes well, the entire country will soon have a reason to celebrate.
