Amidst all the drama, aggression, pressure and stress you go through on the field, imagine finding someone who shares the same level of passion and temperament as you do for sports. Over the years we have seen many memorable fights and competition in the sports world but today being Valentine’s day The Bridge brings you the most memorable love stories from the world of Indian sports.
Neha Pardeshi and Gautam Dagar
Gautam Dagar is the captain of the Indian men’s rugby team and his wife Neha Pardeshi leads Indian women’s rugby team. Both share the same enthusiasm for the sport. Both play at the same position. What more could we ask for? It all started in 2015 when they met during a tournament and couldn’t feel content with their goodbyes. They were so made for each other that not even distance between Pune and Delhi came between them. They confessed to sharing ideas with each other and tips about the performance. The two got engaged in August 2018 and got married a year later.
Dinesh Karthik and Dipika Pallikal
Indian squash queen Deepika Pallikal and cricketer Dinesh Karthik have an adorable love story. While Pallikal seemed to have a dislike for cricketers thinking that they snatch away all the due credits of other Indian sportspersons but realised that Karthik was different. It all started when Karthik surprised former world no 13th by stopping by to watch her play. And the rest is history.
Anju Bobby George and Robert Bobby George
This love story goes beyond track and field. Former World champion and National champion Anju George found a friend in her coach and now now-husband Robert George.
