Indian luge competitor, Shiva Keshavan, has found support from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which has granted him the Olympic Solidarity Scholarship to compete in the qualifiers for the 2014 Sochi Winter Games.

The scholarship was granted to him on the recommendation of India's IOC member, Randhir Singh.

The Asian champion, who has been training in Europe after retaining his Asian title and setting a new continental record, was struggling to raise funds for participating in qualifying events.
