Hockey HPD John quits

- UTHRA GANESAN

Things never remain static in Indian hockey for long. While the players have been without competitio­n for more than five months and are likely to remain so till the end of 2020, they will now also be without high performanc­e director David John.

With less than a year to go for the re-scheduled Tokyo Olympics, John has cited health and personal reasons to resign. He has written to both Hockey India and Sports Authority of India. Hockey India has accepted his resignatio­n and reiterated health as the official reason for John’s exit. However SAI, the official employer, is yet to decide on the matter.

John’s contract had been renewed recently.
