Doing good while doing well: We take pride in doing our bit of social responsibility. For a country that often loses great talent due to lack of support, Great Sports Infra has supported many budding sportspersons including:
Swapna Barman (Heptathlete)

Swapna was born with a special condition of having 6 toes on each foot. Owing to the abnormal width of her feet, she competes in spite of severe pain and discomfort. Swapna currently trains at the SAI Centre in Kolkata and aspires to win the Gold medal at the Asian Games in 2018.
