In preparation for the CWG and the Asian Games later this year, 117 track and field athletes will stay in the extended senior national athletics camp. On the 15th of January, the athletic camp began and was to end on the 31st of December. Which is now extended till the 31st March by SAI.

The SAI approved 45 coaches and support personnel to work with the 117 athletes (64 males and 53 females) who were training in five different sites. The camps will take place in Patiala's Netaji Subhas National Institute of Sports, Thiruvananthapuram's Laxmibai National College of Physical Education, Bengaluru's SAI National Centre of Excellence, New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, and Balussery's Usha School of Athletics.

Shaili Singh, a 17-year-old World Athletics Under-20 silver medallist and long jumper, was one of eight late entrants to the camp in November. Hima das, Avinash Sable, Tejinderpal Singh Toor, and Dutee Chand, all Tokyo Olympians, are at the camp. Neeraj Chopra, the golden boy, a gold medalist in the javelin in the Tokyo Olympics, will not be attending the camp because he is training in the United States.

The competitors on the current list, which has been whittled down to 117, have difficult qualifying marks for the next Commonwealth and Asian Games. Long jumper Murali Sreeshankar and javelin thrower Shivpal Singh, both Tokyo Olympians, did not make the cut for the extended camp.
