Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain has issued a statement thanking the authorities for their quick action as her coach Sandhya Gurung got accreditation for the upcoming Commonwealth Games 2022.
Borgohain shocked the sporting fraternity on Monday, 25th July, when she expressed her frustrations on Twitter, explaining how certain factors have affected her preparation for the event in Birmingham.
The 24-year-old alleged mental harassment, hindrance in her training and how her coaches were being mistreated due to internal politics.
Borgohain’s personal coach, Gurung, was denied entry into the Games Village as she didn’t have accreditation. This forced the Indian boxer to issue the statement on social media. The authorities quickly sprung into action and the issue was resolved as Gurung confirmed to ANI on Tuesday that she had got the accreditation for the event.
“I have received the accreditation for Commonwealth Games 2022,” said Gurung.
