“These hirings are aimed at preparing the players with a focus on the 2020 Tokyo Games. These trained hands will closely work with the players at the Olympic preparatory camps in
“Experienced physiotherapist, biomechanics coach, mental conditioning trainer, and nutritionist will be accompanying the wrestlers buttressed with exposure trips abroad, ensuring world-class preparations for each of the Indian grapplers.”
