Speaking at the opening session, Mr Chris Elstoft, Acting Australian High Commissioner to India said, “On one hand, Australia has varied experience and knowledge of organising sporting events and ensuring world class sports infrastructure, while India, on the other has capabilities and avenues of enhancing the sports sector. Together both countries are determined to work together in four broad areas of – athlete/coach training and development, sport science, sport governance and grassroots participation in sports.”

Dr Paul Gastin, Co-Director, Centre for Sport Research, Deakin University, Australia, led a team of discipline experts to conduct the workshop to sensitise the participants.  These experts are members of the Women in Sport and Exercise (WISE) hub at Deakin University, which aims to improve women’s participation in sport and exercise across their lifespan through research and also strengthen relationships with communities and partners.
