Indian boxers get new boxing hall


For more than one year, Indian boxers in the 2010 Commonwealth Games camp have been training the the wushu hall at National Institute of Sports, Patiala.

The players were practicing at the wushu hall due to the ongoing construction work at the boxing hall and on Thursday, Indian campers got a chance to train at the newly built boxing hall at NIS. The hall consists of three boxing rings along with running and practice area and is fully air-conditioned, a need which most of the Indian boxers have been emphasising upon.

“We are delighted to get an opportunity to train in a fully air-conditioned hall. Conditions in India are mostly above normal temperature and the hall will give us an opportunity to train in world class facilities.

We have been demanding this hall from the past one year and we are happy that the training for 2010 Commonwealth Games will take place in this hall,” said Beijing Olympics bronze medalist Vijender after a practice camp held at the new hall. After the revised list of the boxers for the Commonwealth Games training camp, 48 boxers will take part in the camp including Beijing Olympics quarter-finalist Akhil Kumar, Asian champion Suranjoy Singh and Commonwealth champion Jai Bhagwan.

The 48 boxers took part in a three-hour long training session at the new boxing hall and trained with national coach Gurbax Singh Sandhu and other coaches.
