New Delhi: Indian hockey team's preparation for the London Olympics is in jeopardy as the Sports Ministry is yet to approve the training camp, which was scheduled to start at the SAI centre in Bangalore from Monday.
The delay on part of Sports Ministry, who was intimated about the camp last November, has left the players in the lurch. And the never-ending tug of war between Hockey India (HI) and Indian Hockey Federation (IHF) is not doing the players any good.
"HI had submitted a revised long-term development programme to the Sport Ministry and SAI in November after consulting the various Federations. The camp starts tomorrow but the govt is yet to get back to us," said a HI official.
