After the International Olympic Council (IOC) cleared the situation on Olympic qualifiers where most of the players have breathed a sigh of relief. Anxieties about Olympic preparations such as Combat Sports (Clash ones) and players of weight categories like Bajrang, Vinesh, Mirabai Chanu, Amit Panghal, Vikas Krishna are beginning to emerge. Wrestling, boxing and weightlifting coaches and sportspersons, who are medal contenders for the country at the Tokyo Olympics, believe that work can go on for a few days at home, but training without a partner for a long time will create difficulties, as well as weight. There will be problems in maintaining it.
In boxing, Amit Panghal (52), Manish Kaushik (63), Vikas Krishna (69), Ashish Kumar (75), Satish Kumar (plus 91), Mary Kom (51), Simranjit Kaur (60), Lovalina (69) and Pooja Rani (75 kg) has taken Olympic tickets.
According to reports, the coach of the Indian team and the country's first professional boxer, Arjun Awardi Dharmendra Yadav, clarifies that in boxing, preparations cannot be made for a long time without a partner. During boxing, playing with another boxer is an art. It only comes from training with a partner. This is not possible by practice with a punching bag alone. This is the reason that exercises cannot be done at home for a long time to prepare for the Olympics. He is praying to God that conditions should be normalized as soon as possible so that boxers can be provided partners. Dharmendra also believes that maintaining weight in small weight classes without training is also a big challenge.
