Online coaching for Tokyo-bound Indian boxers

New Delhi, March 29

Their training halted by the national lockdown in view of Covid-19 pandemic, India’s Olympic-bound boxers will be provided online classes by their coaches from Monday to ensure that aspects such as mental well-being and nutrition are taken care of.

Nine Indian boxers — MC Mary Kom, Simranjit Kaur, Lovlina Borgohani, Pooja Rani, Amit Panghal, Manish Kaushik, Vikas Krishan, Ashish Kumar and Satish Kumar — have qualified for the Tokyo Games, postponed to 2021 due to coronavirus.

In a conference call with Tokyo-bound boxers today, the Boxing Federation of India president, Ajay Singh, took stock of their preparations amid the lockdown.

“This is a challenging time for all of us and all the more a reason for us to take care of ourselves...stay fit, continue with the exercises as directed by the coaches and try to maintain your weights as much as possible,” Singh told the boxers. — PTI
