Rakesh, posted in Indian Navy as a Petty Officer, will head for Montreal for the international competition tomorrow. “I am preparing for the world championships. Although, there was an issue over trainer, it has been resolved. I consider the world championships as the commonwealth games so that I could judge my level. Accordingly, I could make a blueprint for the upcoming commonwealth games,” said Rakesh. He added, “I will participate in two Individual Event categories in the competition. I hope to deliver my best performance”.  Rakesh, who hails from Hadagadia Sahi in Puri district, has made Odisha proud with a number of achievements in field of gymnastics.
