Indian Olympic Association, Wrestling Federation of India enhance support to Paris-bound wrestlers

New Delhi/IBNS: Indian Olympic Association (IOA) and the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) have decided to provide necessary support to the country's wrestlers ahead of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

IOA and WFI have strung together a comprehensive support team for the wrestlers, which will include experienced coaches, physiotherapists, nutritionists, mental conditioning coaches, and other essential staff.

Noting that supporting the athletes' quest for success is of utmost priority, IOA president PT Usha said, "By providing an extensive support team, we aim to ensure that our wrestlers have access to the best resources, enabling their peak performance."

"This decision aligns with our commitment to foster an environment where athletes can thrive," she added.

Besides the overarching support framework, IOA and WFI have responded positively to the request of Vinesh Phogat, the first Indian woman wrestler to win a gold at both the Commonwealth and Asian Games, for additional support to aid her preparation to compete in the Paris Olympic Games.

According to the IOA, recognising the importance of Phogat's request, an extra layer of support staff will be provided to cater to her needs.

WFI president Sanjay Singh said the Federation is committed to supporting all its athletes in every possible way.

"We will ensure that Vinesh and all our wrestlers receive the necessary support to excel and keep the nation's flag flying," Singh added.

This initiative is a part of the larger mission of the IOA and WFI to continuously improve the training, preparation, and overall support mechanisms available to all Indian athletes, while the goal is to create a sustainable model of excellence that can propel Indians to greater heights on the global stage.
