The Indian Paralympic Committee on Wednesday welcomed the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics, saying it would bring great relief to para-athletes who are in a dilemma over preparations. PCI General Secretary Gursharan Singh said, "PCI will now be able to come up with a better strategy for the next step after the lockdown in India is over. "President Deepa Malik had earlier said that the health of the players is his priority." Top para athletes including world champion Bhalafenk player Sandeep Chaudhary have also welcomed the decision. "We were preparing for the last four years but due to Kovid 19, the IOC had to take this decision," Chaudhary said. It is difficult to prepare during this difficult time and it is important to have a good competition in this biggest sporting event.
