Sachin Tendulkar’s list of admirers is long and winding and shooting ace Ronjan Sodhi, like the rest of the world, too, is in awe of the cricket legend.

According to the world number two double trap shooter, Tendulkar is the epitome of resilience and determination, and if a sportsperson aspires to have a controversy-free career, then the 38-year-old champion Indian batsman is the one to look upto.

“He is really one person, look at his focus and determination, even at this age he is so focussed,” Sodhi said.

Controversy and Tendulkar never go hand in hand, unlike many of the past and present day sportspersons.

“I have never heard of any controversy about him, never came across anything. I don’t think we will see another sportsman like Sachin,” Sodhi, who recently won a bronze medal at the ISSF World Cup in Slovenia, told PTI here.

Sodhi, a world record holder in double trap event, will be gunning for glory in next year’s London Olympics.
