We Support Shruti Kotwal

Hello Friends,

Some of you may already know that Shruti Kotwal, who represents India in Ice Speed Skating is visiting Salt Lake City from 10th Jan 2020 to March End. She is India’s top ice skater, coming here for training and competitions at Utah Olympic Oval. She is also the first and the only Indian female ice skater.

India has very limited Ice skating training options. Shruti has to travel outside of India for her training. Due to lack of sponsorship from Govt. of India, she is on her own. Her next big goal is to qualify for the speed skating World Cup next year and represent India at the Winter Olympics 2022.

She would be coming to Utah on 10th Jan and if her expenses are met, then she is planned to stay in Utah for training till 31st March. To help Shruti with her expenses, we are opening a donation campaign to help her to cover her expenses.

We are requesting you to extend your help in terms of:

  1. Most important: Financial donations.
  2. Finding here economical accommodations near Utah Olympic Oval / Kearns / West Valley / West Jordan.
  3. Commute to Olympic Oval. Her training is broken into 2 sessions one in early morning starting at 7:00 a.m. and other at afternoon.

    Donate button on the right side is causing confusion. I accedentally donated using that but looks like that donation button was intended for UMM and not for Shruti Kotwal.

      Thanks for informing us. We have updated this page and the right side donation button would not be visible on this page to avoid confusion.
