PESHAWAR, 15 November: The gymnastics team of Khyber Agency has complained that they have not received equipment for training despite assurances by the authorities.

The gymnasts said they performed well in the sports gala last year after which the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor, chief secretary, political agent Khyber Agency and sports director had promised to provide all necessary equipment to them. However, they said no equipment has been provided to them one year after the event. They said despite financial problems they are compelled to arrange equipment for them.

The team’s coach Mohib demanded the governor and other concerned officials to provide gymnastics equipment to them otherwise the local talent in the sport may be spoiled.

“We have no kits and several gymnasts have been injured due to lack of equipment. We appeal to the authorities to provide us equipment,” he said.
