SAI accepts Sindhu’s coach and physio travel proposal

After the coronavirus-induced break, the 26-year-old Sindhu, who is part of the core community of the Goal Olympic Podium Program, will return to competitive action in January next year.

On Friday, the Sports Authority of India (SAI) accepted the proposal of Olympic silver medallist and world champion P V Sindhu to allow her physio and fitness trainer to accompany her during next January’s three tournaments.

After the coronavirus-induced break, the 26-year-old Sindhu, who is part of the core community of the Goal Olympic Podium Program, will return to competitive action in January next year.

“The government has accepted her order for her to be accompanied by her physio and exercise trainer for these three competitions, i.e. Subject to qualifying (January 27-31), Yonex Thailand Open (January 12-17), Toyota Thailand Open (January 19-24) and the World Tour Finals in Bangkok,’ an SAI release said.

“The services of her physio and trainer for these three tournaments were sanctioned at an approximate cost of Rs. 8.25 Lakh.” The Hyderabad 25-year-old is currently employed at the National Training Centre in London with sports nutritionist Rebecca Randell of the Gatorade Sports Science Academy and training with Toby Penty and Rajiv Ouseph of Badminton England.

In October, Sindhu had withdrawn from the Denmark Open, which was the only event that took place in the middle of the pandemic as all tournaments were either canceled or delayed after the All England Championships in March of this year were completed.

Because of logistical challenges, the BWF rejigged the proposed 2020 World Tour, postponing the two USD 1,000,000 Asian leg tournaments and the World Tour Finals to January.
