India’s performance in the recently concluded Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, where India won 7 medals including one precious gold medal won by Neeraj Chopra in Javelin throw, signifies the importance of proper training and recovery management. An incredible 19 medals achievement in Paralympics, including 5 gold medals, further demonstrated the importance of scientific support during training. To compete and level with the internationally leading countries in sports arena, it is necessary for Indian support staff, aspiring professionals, and students to develop skills by using latest technologies and advanced tools to analyse athletes and provide necessary suggestions to improve performance.
