Indian boxing squad will need to undergo four Corona tests within 10 days and function in a bio-secure bubble before exiting from Europe. They will also travel in small batches during the trip.

Two-month long Europe trip of Olympic-bound Indian boxers except for Mary Kom and two others seem to be full of challenges. They will undergo four Corona tests in 10 days. They operate within a bio-secure bubble and move in small groups earlier than leaving for Europe for 52-day training-cum- boxing competition trip. It has been done to isolate the outside world and lower the risk of a dangerous infection.

Tokyo Video games-based boxers will likely be heading to Assisi on Friday for a 52-day voyage. They are going to practice alongside pugilists from diverse European nations.

The European Vacation Will Help Them Prepare for Olympics

Europe tour will render the Indian Boxing team a chance to qualify for the Olympics. Before arriving in Italy, the 28-member group of boxers and the coaching squad must undergo four Covid-19 examinations. It is done before they start coaching at the Nationwide Boxing Centre, Assisi.

They were training in Netaji Subhas National Institute of Sports, Patiala since August’s first week. After the introduction of the Europe trip, the boxers had been told to report again to the NIS by Oct 10, 2020.

The boxers and coaches had been tested on October 11 in NIS. As per TOI reports, there is a doubt in the results, and they need to examine once more on October 15 in Delhi. They will be tested on Oct 17, too, at Rome airport and permitted to travel Assisi via road only after submitting Covid-19 negative certificates were obtained from the well-reputed authorities.

Indian Boxing Federation has managed to safely get the visas of boxersafter getting an invitation from CONI. Moreover, high-performance director of India Santiago Nieva has already gone to Sweden on a trip. The invitation for Europe tour has been extended to diverse European boxing international locations to make the Assisi trip a “multi-nation boxing training camp.”
