Indian rowers have first training session in Tokyo

Tokyo: Indian rowers, led by chief national coach Ismail Baig, had a lengthy first practice session at the Sea Forest Waterway (Central Breakwater) in Tokyo Bay, on Sunday.

Arjun Lal Jat and Arvind Singh, who will participate in men’s lightweight double scull, had reached Tokyo on Saturday morning and set up their boat. On Sunday, they had two practice sessions with the morning session being more exploratory as they tried to feel the improvements since the Olympic Qualifiers they had attended here a few months back.

In the morning session, they had perfect rigging of the boat and had a good run at the training course, taking in the view from the start to finish.

The boat had to be cleaned after each session as it was being rowed in salty water.

The men’s lightweight double scull team is the lone entrant for India at the Tokyo Olympics. India had a competitor fulfilling the requirements in single scull too but did not get the quota as per the new rules that allow only one quota per country.

Meanwhile, sailor Vishnu Saravanan too had a training session on Sunday. Saravanan will be representing India in men’s laser class and had reached here with his three teammates — Nethra Kumanan, KC Ganapathy, and Varun Thakker (45er) two days back.

On Sunday, Saravanan had a training session with some of the world’s best sailors.
