Srinagar: Bakshi Stadium Srinagar has resumed regular athletic training after a long hiatus.
The District Srinagar Athletic Association and Sports Council have begun the designated training sessions. Tahir Mir, a renowned athlete, would provide the coaching, and the training would be available to everyone.
In the past, Bakshi Stadium was a favourite location for the athletes of Kashmir, where regular training sessions were performed.
However, that vanished a while ago. Athletes have begun to return to the stadium as it was recently reopened after undergoing extensive renovations.
“It’s wonderful to see the Stadium being built and made available to the sportsmen. All athletes are welcome to attend the training sessions that have already begun. We are hopeful that a large number of budding athletes will turn for the daily sessions,” said the coach.
