The Athletics Federation of India (AFI), forced to repeatedly reschedule its calendar and delay competitions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is now gearing up to finally get off the block.

With World Athletics president Sebastian Coe virtually addressing on the second day of the AFI AGM here on Sunday, planning committee chairman Lalit Bhanot admitted it was time to return to competitive mode.

 

“Offices are all open, trains and other transport is open. The athletes are in training, we cannot sit idle forever and have to get into competitions mode. There is not much time left, we need to learn to live with COVID. We can start at state and district levels and then begin competition at the national level,” Bhanot said.
