The Indian Boxer, Lovlina Borgohain is one of the 215 participants who will represent India at the upcoming 22nd edition of the Commonwealth Games 2022. This mega event is going to kick off on 28 July 2022. But, Lovlina came up with shocking news on 25 July 2022 on her Twitter.

She shared a post where she expressed the harassment that she and her coaches have been receiving in Birmingham, England ahead of this tournament. Lovlina also said that her training routine has come to an abrupt stop due to such mental harassment.

Here is the shared post by Lovlina on Twitter:

โ€œMy coach Sandhya Gurung Ji is out of the Commonwealth Village as she is not allowed entryโ€ – Lovlina Borgohain

Speaking about the post, she said that her coach, Sandhya Gurung has not been allowed to make an entry into the CWG village. Even, her second coach has been sent back to India already. She wrote: Every time my coaches who helped me win a medal at the Olympics have been removed from my training process and competition…my coach Sandhya Gurung Ji is out of the Commonwealth Village as she is not allowed entry and my training has been brought to a halt eight days before the Games. My other coach has been sent back to India, despite me requesting multiple times,”

Her post also said that she is trying to break through all such politics by focusing on winning a medal for her country. “I don’t understand how I am supposed to focus on my game. This situation ruined my performance during the last world championships also. I don’t want this politics to ruin my Commonwealth Games too. I hope I can break through this politics and win a medal for my country,” she wrote.

However, talking to the Bridge, her coach, Sandhya Gurung looked calm. “Lovlina is just scared because I am stuck outside the Games village. I have been assured by the IOA that my accreditation will be sorted. I will be allowed inside the village soon,” she concluded.
