Cross country skier Jagdish Singh is finally set to make his Winter Olympics debut in Pyeongchang as the confusion over who will accompany him as coach has ended. Jagdish will be accompanied by former cross country skier Nadeem Iqbal, who took part in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Iqbal's name as coach has been cleared by the Indian Olympics Association after being recommended by the High Altitude Warfare School (HAWS) at Gulmarg, where Jagdish trains.

"The issue is sorted out. The HAWS has nominated Nadeem Iqbal as coach of Jagdish. It (HAWS) has written to us that Nadeem Jagdish has been training under Iqbal. We have checked it and we are satisfied with it," IOA Secretary General Rajeev Mehta said.
