Krishan, who for the primary time revealed his a number of run-ins with Nieva throughout the latter’s five-year lengthy affiliation with Indian boxing beginning March 2017, expressed happiness over the event and hoped the nation’s boxers would now have the ability to reclaim their misplaced glory which they’d loved throughout the time of Gurbax Singh Sandhu because the chief coach of the boys’s crew.
“I’m completely satisfied that Nieva is leaving. It ought to have been completed way back, however lastly it’s occurring. His exit will convey Indian boxing heading in the right direction. For the boys’s boxing crew’s disappointing efficiency on the Tokyo Olympics, the place none of us might attain the medal spherical, Nieva has to partially share the blame. He took us to Italy (Assisi) for an exposure-cum-training journey forward of the Tokyo Olympics when not one of the boxers from the Italian males’s boxing crew might really qualify for the Video games! I by no means understood the logic behind taking the crew to Italy for coaching periods when he might have really deliberate for journeys to Mexico, USA, Cuba or Azerbaijan that are the boxing powerhouses,” Krishan informed TOI in an interview.
Krishan, a three-time Asian Video games medallist, together with a gold on the 2010 Guangzhou version, provided examples to clarify his deep reservation about Nieva’s unscientific coaching strategies. “Inform me, who would supply pizza to athletes coaching for the Olympics? He would. It occurred so many occasions in Italy. At a time when the boxers had been both chopping down or sustaining their weights for the Olympics, Nieva was providing them pizzas twice every week as a meal. And this, proper earlier than the Video games. There was no Indian meals obtainable for us. In a month, the boxers had been having pizzas no less than 9-10 occasions. I protested and confronted him a number of occasions over the meals concern. Fortunately, I had the posh of my very own automobile in Italy to exit and eat some Indian meals,” the 2018 Gold Coast CWG gold medallist mentioned.
Speaking about Nieva’s poor ability set, Krishan, who’s rehabilitating from a career-threatening proper shoulder harm because the Tokyo Video games, defined that his weight coaching strategies and muscle endurance workouts had been quaint. “I don’t assume Nieva was the appropriate particular person to information the Indian boxers to win medals on the Olympics. He would inform boxers to go for explosive coaching like those adopted in weightlifting or the excessive leap and discus throw occasions. In boxing, it’s extra about constructing your muscle endurance. I ended coaching below him after one or two periods as a result of I didn’t see any profit. His coaching didn’t contribute to growing the boxers’ energy and power. Additionally, he would rely extra on explaining by movies on YouTube quite than introducing his personal coaching strategies,” he mentioned.
