The Sports Authority of India (SAI) has taken a serious view of the flag-bearer controversy and mismanagement at the World University Games (WUG) in China and sought a clarification from the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) officials on the issue.
“We are seeking a clarification from the AIU officials on the problems faced by Indian contingent during the (preparatory) camp and competition. We are asking the AIU official, who became the flag-bearer, to explain his conduct,” said Desh Deepak Verma, director-general, SAI, on Friday.
Mismanagement on the part of the AIU officials resulted in a shortage of pellets at the preparatory camp for shooters, while the playing kits supplied turned out to be of poor quality. HTC
