The Indian athletics team, comprising 30 members, is gearing up for the Paris Olympics with meticulous training across three overseas locations. These strategic preparations aim to ensure peak performance during the prestigious event, which begins on August 1.

Athletes’ preparations for Paris Olympics

Neeraj Chopra, the Olympic and world champion in javelin throw, will be based at the Gloria Sports Arena in Antalya, Turkey. His rigorous training in Finland and Germany has prepared him for the showpiece event. Chopra recently clinched gold at the Paavo Nurmi Games in Finland, and he won’t be competing in any other meets before the Olympics.

Several athletes have reached Poland for intensive training at the Olympic Sports Center in Spala. Among them are Kishore Jena (javelin thrower), Jyothi Yarraji (hurdler), Jeswin Aldrin (long jumper), Praveen Chithravel (triple jumper), The men’s and women’s 4x400m relay teams, Annu Rani (javelin thrower), Tajinderpal Singh Toor and Abha Khatua (shot put athletes).

Steeplechasers Avinash Sable and Parul Chaudhary will train in the picturesque town of St. Moritz in Switzerland. They will join the other athletes in Poland on July 24 before departing for Paris.

Race walkers, including Akshdeep Singh, Paramjeet Singh Bisht, Vikash Singh, and Suraj Panwar, are honing their skills at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) centre in Bengaluru. Triple jumper Abdulla Aboobacker and middle-distance runner Ankita Dhyani are also training there.

The Indian athletics team is leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit of excellence. As they prepare to represent the nation on the global stage, their dedication and hard work exemplify the spirit of sportsmanship and determination.
