NEW DELHI, May 5: World champion shuttler PV Sindhu believes foreign coaches would be difficult to hire in a post COVID-19 world, presenting former India internationals the opportunity to step forward and fill in the void.

�If the global pandemic continues, bringing coaches from abroad might become difficult, there are a lot of good players in our country who have played at international level, and we can use them in a coaching capacity,� Sindhu said on Monday while speaking during a webinar.

The Olympic silver-medallist was addressing the newly-appointed Assistant Directors of the Sports Authority of India through an online session.

Sindhu stressed on the importance of parents, coaches, administrators working as a team to build up a champion.

�The administrators must know the journey of every sportsperson. The future of Indian sports lies in the hands of young sports administrators like all of you,� she said.

�You must visit all the SAI regional centres and be aware of the performances from the players and be in touch with their parents. The parent�s involvement is a lot and you need to take feedback from them. This feedback needs to be monitored.�

The 24-year-old from Hyderabad also said �players must be continuously tracked to avoid age fraud.�

�You must also understand how the SAI coaching system works and if athletes are receiving the right diet and supplements at the various centres,� she added. � PTI
