Lovlina Borgohain blames felicitations, functions post Tokyo Olympics medal for loss of focus

Tokyo Olympics 2020 bronze medalist Lovlina Borgohain made it to the women’s squad for the Commonwealth Games 2022 along with world champion Nikhat Zareen and two upcoming stars Neetu and Jasmine in Delhi on Saturday (June 11). The CWG is moving into Lovlina’s second event after the World Championship where her campaign in the pre-quarterfinals was cut short.

So is Lovlina ready to move on from the gloom of the world and rock the world at the CWG 2022 in Birmingham. “The main thing was that I was not mentally strong enough in the World Championship. I was not able to concentrate properly. I focused on that,” Lovlina told reporters after confirming her place in the 70kg event of the Commonwealth Games. work done.”

She also stated that endless work was one of the reasons for her poor footwear at the World Championships and other commitments outside the boxing ring affected her training and her loss of focus following her Olympic bronze-winning performance.

“My goal was to win the gold medal in Tokyo, but I didn’t. After that, I kept thinking in my head that ‘I have to train and do well in the next competition’. But it didn’t happen,” she said. Since the Olympics, the 24-year-old has had to participate in innumerable honors and celebrations, but all the attention has come with a price. “After Tokyo people started expecting a lot. I also had to attend many festivals and you can’t say because they would think that ‘she developed an ego after winning a medal’.

“There are moments when you can’t do anything and you have to give up your training. It affects us. A player needs to be given space to focus on the game.”

“I didn’t think all this would affect my performance, but somewhere it happened.”

This is not the first time an athlete has complained of being burdened with commitments after winning a medal.

Last year, after winning the historic gold medal at the Tokyo Games, javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra had also said that his training was affected as he had to participate in several events.

The two-time World Boxing Championships bronze medalist believes that people should be mindful of an athlete’s needs.

“I have to learn every step of the way, the loss of the World Championships taught me a lot and somewhere it was important.

“My training in the World Championship was also not fair. I learned a lot from that loss. It was part of my journey.”

With the introduction of new weight categories, Lovlina, who has achieved most of her success competing in the 69kg category, will have to change her category to 66kg or 75kg.

“I have thought of 75kg but I am not gaining much weight, so I will decide after Commonwealth Games in which weight category I want to play. After Commonwealth Games, there is Asian Championship and I will decide what to do next. Have to do. Whatever weight I decide to participate in. In, I will continue in the Olympics. There is confusion because my weight is between 68 and 69. But now I am struggling to get below or above 68 “
