Emphasising on this, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of JSW Sports, Mustafa Ghouse has stated that athletes at the Inspire Institute of Sports in Vijayanagar have been continuing to train with restrictions.

"We have organised multiple sessions on nutrition, psychology, training and physiotherapy and rehabilitation for our athletes stuck at home or in national camps with limited opportunities to train", he said.
