MUMBAI: Indian medal hopefuls at the London Olympics are upset with their ‘poor quality’ kit and uniforms, a newspaper reported on Friday. “To be honest, this is the worst kit I have seen,” Indian boxer Jai Bhagwan, who is to compete in the men’s lightweight (60kg) category, was quoted as saying by the Mumbai Mirror. “It’s of poor quality, lacks durability and some of it does not even fit right. Our kit in national competitions was of much better quality.” The tabloid also said that Indian hockey ace Sandeep Singh had been spotted playing in ill-fitting shorts which were ‘bursting at the seams’.
