Andhra Pradesh Olympic Association (APOA) Secretary General RK Purushotham has said the association will send more than 200 athletes to the 36th National Games of India 2022 to be held in Gujarat from September 27. .

At a press conference here on Saturday, Mr Purushotham said that APOA held a meeting with 23 sports associations, with whose support APOA is going to participate in the national games. He claimed that APOA is affiliated with the Indian Olympic Association but has not been recognized by the Andhra Pradesh Sports Authority (SAAP).

“We are allowed to compete in uniform jerseys for all events,” he said, adding that APOA was looking for sponsors.

The association is waiting for support from the state government which could also sponsor the athletes, he said. “We expect Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to support us and also expect recognition from SAAP,” he said. He said the list of players will be released on August 15.

He said athletes from all sports and associations are invited to participate in the games through APOA, led by Deputy Chief Minister Dharmana Krishnadas.
