Need to strengthen position of jury/judges in system: Pawan Singh

While talking about being the first Indian juror at Tokyo Olympics, Singh pointed that for any sport to grow, there have to be four pillars, namely coaches, athletes, judges/jury, and federation.

He added that a lot of efforts have been taken for the upliftment of sports and currently, three pillars have become very strong at the global level, which are coaches, athletes, and federation.

Athletes and coaches have been given the necessary training, while the federations have established themselves well using their connections. Sadly, not much has been done for strengthening the position of judges/jury in the system, as to motivate them there is no career path.
