NEW DELHI, April 19: Indian boxing�s High Performance Director Santiago Nieva expects the national camp to resume at least partially next month and foresees no hiccups in fans rushing back to live sport in the age of social distancing as he feels people always �look for risks�.
The seasoned coach, who has been with the Indian team since 2017, is quite optimistic of things improving by the beginning of next month despite the rising COVID-19 cases as well as the number of deaths in the country.
�I think the camp will restart next month. If not full strength, then at least the core group,� he told PTI.
The core group comprises the ones who have already qualified for the Olympics and those who are seen to be strong contenders to make the cut in future qualifiers.
Asked what gives him the belief that camps would be good to go if the national lockdown ends on May 3, the Swede said, �That�s my hunch. Of course I can be wrong but I think we will be able to restart early next month.� � PTI
