Track and field athletes are all set to resume training from today


After 2 months of lockdown, the track and field athletes will finally resume training from today. The decision came after, the Central Government allowed to open the stadia without any spectators. The coronavirus has forced the sportsperson to stay indoors, this has hampered the fitness level of the athletes. All athletes based at NIS Patiala, Sai Centre in Bengaluru and Ooty will start the “outdoor fitness” training session on Monday. But the prior motive of Athletics Federation Of India will be to save the athletes from any injury.

Athletics Federation Of India President Adille Sumariwalla told PTI, “They will not have specific training as they were in their rooms for eight weeks,” when asked about from when will the athletes start specific training he said, “Of course, they will do that when their specific fitness comes to a certain level”.

Some of India’s top notch sportsperson will start their training at NIS(National Institute Of Sports) the athletes were restricted to their hostels by Sports Authority Of India since March.

AFI is planning to begin from September 12 with three national championship being squeezed to less than 45 days.
