Archery News: Archer Abhishek Varma expresses displeasure

Behind a successful team, there is always a positive approach and motivation of the team’s coach. The Indian Men’s and Women’s Archery team made the country proud in the recently happened Asian Games 2018 but their coach Jiwanjot Singh Teja is currently battling to get his name for the most prestigious award for a coach, The Dronacharya Award. National compound archery coach Jiwanjot Singh Teja was recommended for this year’s Dronacharya Award by the selection committee, only for his name to be rejected by the sports ministry for an indiscretion three years ago. Teja was the national coach at the 2015 World University Games in Korea when the women’s compound team failed to reach the venue on time for the bronze medal playoff, thereby forfeiting the contest. The Archery Association of India banned him for a year.
