Description:
Mittal Champions Trust supports Indian athlete with world-beating potential. It is funded by Lakshmi Mittal and was initiated by his son-in-law Amit Bhatia.

It was founded on 9 November 2005 by Mahesh Bhupathi. The first beneficiary was Joshna Chinappa, India's best squash player. The trust was formed due to Mittal being disappointed by the dismal performance by Indians, who won just one bronze medal in the 1996 Summer Olympics, another bronze in the 2000 Summer Olympics and a silver medal in the 2004 Summer Olympics. The initial funding is $9 million. The trust aims at developing Indian athletes for the 2012 Olympics in London.

The sports in focus are Squash, Badminton, Archery, Boxing, Shooting sports, Swimming and Heptathlon. The foundation has said that they won't be supporting cricket.
