Archery, taekwondo, gymnastics, paralympic, kabaddi and golf are not recognized
Players are unable to enter many international events due to factions
Dainik BhaskarSep 20, 2019, 12:14 PM IST Rajkishore. In the six sports association, players have to face problems due to mutual dispute. There are two factions of Archery, Taekwondo, Gymnastics, Paralympic, Kabbadi and Golf. For this reason, the Sports Ministry has not recognized them. As a result, if these events are national events, then their certificate is not valid. Due to this, players are not getting the benefits they get in the state. The Sports Authority of India (SAI) conducts trials of these sports before the international event. Archery's team could not make it to the Asia Cup due to the controversy. There is doubt about the team leaving for the Asian Championships in Bangkok in November.
Medalist Archery team could not even make it to Asia Cup
Archery players have won two silver and four bronze medals in the World Cup and World Championship since 1 January 2018, but the controversy has upset the players. The matter of the Federation's fight is in court. As such, the dispute will go on until both decisions are reached. Sanjeev Sachdeva, secretary of the faction that won the elections in the past, said that the Government of India should summon all the officials and find a solution to the matter.
Effect: If the national event is there then only the players depend on the camp
The national tournament does not have good players because of the lack of recognition by the Sangh. This affects the preparation of the players. They get a chance to prepare for the camp just before the international tournament. The camp lasts a maximum of two weeks. They have not been able to enter many international tournaments. In many sports, the players themselves have to bear the cost to go to the event. If the national event certificate is not valid, if the player employs them for the job, then they are not getting the benefit there.
Gymnastics players could not reach trial
Gymnastics Federation is banned since 2011. Recently, Sai held a trial for the World Championship. A letter was issued on 14 September for this. The players were called for trial on 16 September. But Papia Das and international player Lekha, who have entered the Asian Championship, could not get here due to less time for the trials.
Taekwondo players do not even seem to camp
The camp of Taekwondo players is not being organized by Sai. Players have to go to international events at their expense. Kabbadi and golf are also banned after the controversy. At the same time, the Paralympic Association removed its president Rao Inderjit Singh. Because of this their recognition has been removed. Para Badminton was brought under the Badminton Federation of India.
