Adidas has appointed India's top ranked female table tennis player Manika Batra as brand ambassador.
The appointment is part of adidas' endeavour to be an ally for women as they aim to break barriers in sport.
Batra won the Arjuna Award in 2018 and Major Dhyan Chand Khel Ratna in 2020. She joins adidas' roster that includes athletes like Mirabai Chanu, Lovlina Borgohain, Hima Das and Nikhat Zareen, among others.
Sunil Gupta, senior director - brand, Adidas India, said, "We are thrilled to have Manika Batra as the newest member of the adidas family. She is an inspiration to many young women who aspire to push limits and achieve seemingly unachievable goals. We will continue to drive the attitude, 'Impossible Is Nothing' through our athletes while celebrating women in the world of sports."
