Sports Ministry and IOA Take Notice of the Claims Made by Lovlina Borgohain

The charges made by boxer Lovlina Borgohain, who won bronze at the Tokyo Olympics, against the authorities for delaying her preparations for the Commonwealth Games, were quickly taken note of by the Sports Ministry and Indian Olympic Association (IOA).

 


In response to Lovlina's post, the IOA issued a statement stating that it had been made aware of the concern expressed on social media by team India boxer Lovlina questioning the eligibility of her coach Sandhya Gurung for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

"The problem of Ms. Gurung's accreditation was a late request received following the Delegation Registration Meeting with the national delegations with the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Organising Committee. A specific request has been made to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Organising Committee on a priority basis to provide Ms. Gurung with the necessary credentials, the IOA stated in a release. This is because the IOA places the comfort of the Indian athletes at the highest level.

In the past, the IOA had been given instructions by the sports ministry to set up Sandhya Gurung's accreditation.

We have encouraged the Indian Olympic Association to set up the accreditation of Lovlina Borgohain's coach as soon as possible, according to the tweet.

After a 15-day training camp in Ireland, the Indian boxing team landed at the Games Village in Birmingham on Sunday night.

Sandhya Gurung, Lovlina's personal coach, was barred from the event because she was unable to present identification. After that, Lovlina wrote a lengthy post on Twitter to describe her situation.
