Long-term project for athletes/coaches launched
The Ministry of Sports hopes to launch a new long-term project soon to uplift athletics by funding athletes and coaches.
21 athletes who are training for the Asian Games to be held in 2022, as well as this year’s Asian Championships and the Olympic Games, will benefit by this.
The selected athletes have been shortlisted based on their recent performances and ranking.
Fourteen coaches will also be evaluated under this project, and three head coaches will oversee the training process.
According to the plan, financial assistance as well as all facilities for residential training, will be provided to athletes under the supervision of the leading coaches in the island.
