The novel coronavirus has already claimed 18 lives in India with over 23,000 casualties across the worth.

“I can’t claim to do much as India fights the corona pandemic but, despite, the uncertainty I am committed to my team for the foreseeable future. I will carry the load for as long as I can. Till we are back to helping our patients, athletes and clients,” Said Bindra in a tweet.

Bindra operates two independent organisations. The Abhinav Bindra Foundation (ABF) and the Physical Excellence Facility (ABTP) with various centres across India.

Abhinav Bindra had strong opinions regarding International Olympic Committee timing of the Games’ postponement. While athletes across the world slammed the committee for delaying the announcement, Bindra felt IOC was “prompt” in the same.

“It is nice to see that the decision was taken quite promptly because there was a lot of uncertainty surrounding whether the Games would happen or not,” he was quoted as saying by ‘Olympic Channel’.

“I think the decision was taken timely. It is a very complicated decision which had to be taken.

“The athletes can now calm down a little bit and firstly make sure that they stay healthy and people around them stay healthy. That is the most important thing.”

“We had a call with 200 athlete representatives recently. We have been in constant touch with the entire athlete community. It’s nice to see that the welfare of the athletes has taken precedence,” he added.
