Winning the medal at under 23 is the best moment of my life: Himanshu Tyagi

Not everybody gets to live the life they want, not everyone gets the chance to do what they love for the rest of their lives, says under 23 Asian games Medalist Himanshu Tyagi. Himanshu who belongs to Roorkee, Haridwar is an International volleyball player.

On being asked how he started his volleyball journey he tells that he was never into volleyball in fact he was never into sports. He says I liked watching cricket, I used to see a lot of people playing volleyball around but I never took any interest in the game. Life took a turn when I changed my school, I made new friends over there, I was really tall from the beginning so my new friends took me in the volleyball due to my height, and after I started playing volleyball I actually fell in love with this sport. From that day then, there was no looking back. I practised hard every day went on to become the captain of my state volleyball team. I was offered to practise with the Ongc team which is one the best teams in India. Met my idol volleyball player’s became friends with them, got selected for the Asian game and by god’s grace and sheer hard work we bagged the silver medal in the under 23 Asian volleyball championship. Winning a silver medal at the Asian championship is one of the best moment of my life’s. It just feels like a dream sometimes.

Himanshu just got a job in the Indian navy and got to a place in the services team for Senior nationals “I am just really glad, says Himanshu “People say that it is easier to play for India but it is extremely hard to get in the services team. I feel the years of hard work and the experience I have garnered while playing in Asian games is finally paying off. He says he is really glad that I can’t forget the day I got selected in the Services team I could not reply to the texts and whats app messages for 3 straight days.

He also hopes that he gets to be part of the team thats qualifies for olympic, he cant wait for that day to happen soon.
