However, the preparation of athletes to participate in the competition is funded by the Development Fund. National sports Through the Sports Authority of Thailand fully, originally the Asian indoor athletes and the martial arts games. Has started to keep practicing Since October 1, the period of retention of the athletes was originally the period between October 1, 2020 – May 18, 2021, including a period of more than 7 months (230 days).

“The postponement of the competition resulted in the training being held for about 10 months in order to prepare fully, the plans and the budget will be extended. For most Asian indoor athletes, they will be athletes who will compete in the 31st SEA Games in Vietnam. There will be some parts that will only compete in the Asian Indore. Then make it not affect much Because athletes had to keep training already, during the epidemic of COVID-19 resulted in athletes Unable to travel to practice Or compete abroad To gain experience and develop the potential

Causing need to adjust the form of training And more surveillance measures were imposed, but the athletes were fully determined and committed. Some of the trainers’ associations traveling to train have not traveled yet, causing it to be affected. Or if they can come, they must be detained under 14-day measures, which for some sports Will use online training Recording practice clips Or sending a link to the practice results online via Smart Watch, etc. The 6th Asian Indoor Sports Competition and Major Arts Games Thailand is the host Gives us an advantage in many areas as the host country The athletes have practiced in real locations. Are familiar with the real playing field Topography Familiar environments will have a greater chance of winning medals in competitions. In addition, countries have had problems with the lack of full training. Or some countries with heavy outbreaks that prevent athletes from practicing at all. “

In accordance with the work plan and budget of the Sports Authority of Thailand And there are still some athletes waiting for Qualify.

By postponing the Olympic Games And the situation with the epidemic of COVID-19 has caused the Qualify system of sports federations to be postponed without confirming whether Qualify will be held on time or not. Or will need to change the format of Qualify to collect the Ranking score or how, which still has to wait for confirmation of the competition From the Federation By some federation There may be adjustments to the format of Qualify, it will have to wait for further notice from the Federation.

The impact of the postponement of the competition Towards athletes is Causing athletes to exercise for a longer time This will cause performance or potential to decline. Because the training that can be done in full form as before And going to practice abroad cannot travel Immobilize And gain more experience For full development For impact on optimism Athletes may have more opportunities to qualify for the competition. As there may be some athletes withdrawn and if a new reallocate, it may increase the ranking of Thai athletes. And have the opportunity to get more rights
