GUWAHATI: The sports activities are hampered due to the lockdown and players were forced to spend their time at home. However Lovlina Borgohain, the new star in Indian sports, is strictly following the training schedule and different workouts that coaches were sent to her.

The more good news for the boxer is that recently SAI provided her boxing equipment so that she can continue her preparation at home amid lockdown.

It is expected that Indian athletes likely to be confined to their homes for some time even after the lockdown is lifted. Keeping it in mind the Sports Authority of India (SAI) and its Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) Secretariat have ensured that anything the athletes need to train at home reaches to their doorstep.

The boxer in her twitter account admitted that she received the equipment sent by SAI (TOPS) and it will help her to continue her training schedule staying at home.

Lovlina recently took her into the record book by qualifying in the Tokyo Olympics. It would be the third occasions when an athlete from Assam will participate in the Olympics but it’s the first instance that a women athlete from the State will be the part of this Mega sporting event. Earlier shuttler Dipankar Bhattacharjee and boxer Shiva Thapa participated twice in the Olympics. Lovlina during the discussions with media too admitted that it’s an extremely happy feeling to become the first women athlete to qualify for the Olympics from Assam.

Meanwhile although Tokyo Olympic is postponed by a year due to COVID-19 pandemic but Lovlina feels it would not create any problem to her and she would be fully ready before the start of the Olympic. Talking to a sports website the medal winner in World Boxing Championsip, said: “With the Olympic being delayed I have a lot of time on my hands. I am extremely confident that by next year I will be fully prepared and will fulfill my dreams of becoming an Olympic champion.”
