CWG 2022: huge relief for Lovlina Borgohain as her coach Sandhya Gurung gets an accreditation

Lovlina on Sunday took to Twitter and wrote about the mental harassment she had been subjected to. The boxer wrote that the coaches who helped her win the Olympic medal were removed which hindered her training process

In a huge relief for Lovlina Borgohain, the Tokyo Olympics Bronze medallist's coach Sandhya Gurung finally got her accreditation for the upcoming Commonwealth Games.

The Indian boxing contingent had reached the Games Village on Sunday night. However, Borgohain's personal coach was denied entry as she didn't have accreditation.

Lovlina on Sunday took to Twitter and wrote about the mental harassment she had been subjected to. The boxer wrote that the coaches who helped her win the Olympic medal were removed which hindered her training process. 'Due to this my last World Championships was also spoiled but I don't want to spoil my CWG because of this politics,' added Lovlina.

Following her tweet, the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) on Monday said that Lovlina's coach has been provided "delegate transport and accommodation" at the hotel.

BFI stated that it ensured that Sandhya Gurung, who is one of Lovlina's coaches, was at the training camp in Ireland. The federation was closely working with IOA so that Gurung could be a part of the team in Birmingham.

BFI further explained that only 33% of the playing contingent was allowed as support staff which in BFI’s case for the 12 boxers stood at 4 including coaches. However, with IOA’s help, the number of support staff went up from 4 to 8 for the entire contingent of 12 boxers.
