Star Boxer’s personal coach gets accreditation

Borgohain’s personal coach Sandhya Gurung, who was in Birmingham to participate in the Commonwealth Games, also got accreditation for the Games on Tuesday. Her coach got this recognition after Lovlina’s tweet in which she claimed that her preparations were affected due to the ‘constant harassment’. Please tell that Sandhya is also the assistant coach of the Indian boxing team. He was included in the Indian contingent just days before the competition. On reaching here on Sunday, he was not allowed to enter the sports village as he did not have the accreditation, which led to a controversy. An Indian Olympic Association (IOA) official told PTI, “Sandhya was brought to the boxing sports village this morning and given accreditation. He is with the team now.” Sandhya has also been given a room in the sports village.

Lovlina expressed her disappointment on Twitter

All this action happened after Lovlina’s long post on Twitter on Monday. In this post, he wrote about mental harassment while talking about battling to get his coach included in the team. She wrote, “Today I am saying with great sadness that I am being harassed (mentally) continuously. The coach who helped me get a medal in the Olympics is always thrown out, which affects my training program.

Coach Sandhya’s special contribution in the success of Lovlina

Lovlina, who won the bronze medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, credited Sandhya for her recovery from her mental state prior to the Games. Sandhya was also with Lovlina during her 15-day training camp in Ireland before the Commonwealth Games. The Boxing Federation of India (BFI) said in a statement that according to the rules, the support staff in squawd is one-third (33 per cent) of the number of players. There are 12 players (eight men and four women) in the Indian boxing contingent. According to this, four associate members can stay with the team. The BFI said, “The requirement of boxing with respect to the coach and support staff is slightly different as there may be several matches one after the other.” The number has been increased from four to eight.
