NEW DEHLI: Indian sports officials have expressed shock at conditions in the Olympics training camp for the country’s wrestlers, with rotten fruit being prepared in a dirty kitchen, said a report yesterday. Former swimmer Khajan Singh, a member of the sports ministry’s monitoring panel, visited the camp at Sonepat, 45 kilometres (30 miles) north of New Delhi, where the wrestlers are training ahead of next month’s London Games. “I was shocked to see rotten fruits used to make juice and unhygienic conditions in the kitchen,” Singh, a silver-medallist at the 1986 Asian Games, told the Hindustan Times. “There is no dietitian or medical expert to oversee the quality of food being served.” Singh added that the wrestlers had not complained because they feared being thrown out of the camp.
