New Delhi: He is ready to take “moral responsibility” for India’s medal-less boxing campaign in Rio Olympics but national coach Gurbax Singh Sandhu says the four-year-long administrative logjam cannot escape blame for all that has gone wrong with the once flourishing sport.


“I am personally hurt and I take moral responsibility for this. But I feel my boys’ performance was satisfactory under the current circumstances and with the kind of tough draws they ended up getting.



As for other things, I knew what was going on in the last four years but I continued thinking that things would improve,” a disheartened Sandhu told PTI in an interview.
