Race walk coach Gurmeet Singh and discus thrower Kamalpreet Kaur’s coach Rakhi Tyagi will not be travelling to the Tokyo Olympics due to lack of accreditation.
It is learnt that the Athletics Federation of India’s (AFI) last-minute effort to get accreditation for Gurmeet and Kamalpreet’s coach Rakhi Tyagi did not work out as their names were in the long list submitted months before the start of Olympics to get accredited.
“Gurmeet’s name and that of Rakhi Tyagi were not in the long list submitted a few months ago and AFI’s last minute effort to get them accredited did not bear fruit,” a team source said. “We are still trying.”
