“MOC approves a 65 days long training camp for CWG Medalists @mirabai_chanu & @BindyaraniS at St. Louis, 🇺🇸 with Dr. Aaron Horschig. #TOPSchemeAthletes will be training at @SquatUniversity to prepare for the all important #AsianGames2022.”

The athletes’ physiotherapist Tesneem Zayyad and Indian head coach Vijay Sharma will accompany them on their 65-day training camp abroad. In addition to components of their training, the government will provide coverage for various expenses, including plane travel costs; local transportation, gym memberships, and doctor consultations, are given by the government.

After competing in the Asian championships in South Korea last month, Mirabai, who had a hip problem and came in sixth with a total weight of 194kg, travelled to the USA for roughly a 10-day training trip.
