NEW DELHI: A thorough review of India’s performance in Rio Olympics 2016 by the sports ministry has begun in the backdrop of the prime minister Narendra Modi announcement of establishing a task force to prepare for future Olympics.

Sports Minister Vijay Goel has written to each of the athletes who participated at Rio, seeking their suggestions. He has stated that they should feel free to give their feedback. In his letter, Goel has stressed the need for more inputs from performers like them so that the pool of world-class athletes can be enhanced and sports infrastructure strengthened.

The ministry has also written to the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) to submit their feedback on India’s performance in Rio and steps needed for improvement. Such feedback will also be sought from the National Sports Federations (NSFs).

Goel will have detailed meetings with the IOA and the NSFs shortly in this regard. The objective of this exercise is to analyse performance.

Modi had announced setting up a task force to prepare a comprehensive action plan for effective participation of Indian sportspersons in the next three Olympic games 2020, 2024 and 2028.

The ministry will also take a look at the duties and responsibilities of various members of the Indian contingent for the Rio Olympics with the purpose of making a fair assessment of their role and taking steps for improvement.

Goel will visit some prominent academies and Sports Authority of India Centres to have first-hand knowledge of the facilities available for training and improvement required. On 17 September, he will visit the Gopi Chand Badminton Academy in Hyderabad where he will meet players, coaches and other support persons. He will also visit the SAI Centre at Hyderabad.
