    I have not seen Doctor's winning Gold Medals in sports Activities. As Doctor's only give advice to their patients to exercise but they actually do not get into sports. But Dr. Ashuthosh Boloor is a unique person. Congratulations Dr. Ashuthosh Boloor and his daughter Keya Boloor. I appreciate for your hard work, strong will and encouraging your daughter, and winning Gold Medals in the competition. That is the spirit.
