Digital Desk: Indian athletes have been granted permission to attend overseas training camps to improve their talents and prepare for upcoming international events. The Mission Olympic Cell (MOC) of the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports has accepted Olympic gold medallist Neeraj Chopra's petition to train in Kuortane, Finland. Payas Jain, a table tennis player, will also travel to Taiwan for an intensive training session.
Neeraj Chopra, who recently topped the world rankings for javelin throw, plans to hone his skills in Finland's famed Kuortane Olympic Training Centre. This training period coincides with his preparations for the upcoming World Athletics - Gold Level events in June. Neeraj had already completed a similar training programme in 2022, with positive results.
The MOC has approved paddler Payas Jain's petition for an advanced training camp in Taiwan, adding him to the roster of athletes seeking foreign exposure. Payas will be able to hone his table tennis talents and get vital experience against foreign opponents.
Along with this recent progress, Indian table tennis talents Manika Batra and Sathiyan Gnanasekaran have gained approval for their requests to bring along personal coaches Aman Balgu and Raman Subramanian, respectively.
Manika Batra and Aman Balgu will compete in the WTT Contender Zagreb and WTT Star Contender Ljubljana, while Sathiyan Gnanasekaran and Raman Subramanian will fight in the WTT Contender Tunis, WTT Contender Zagreb, and WTT Contender Ljubljana. The financial aid provided will cover their travel expenditures, camp accommodations, lodging, medical insurance, and other connected charges.
Additionally, the MOC has introduced rower Salman Khan to the Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) Development Group. Salman, who is from Haryana's Mewat district, found glory by earning a gold medal at the Gujarat National Games last year.
