IOA to arrange new sports kit for Indian contingent without China imprint

@WeAreTeamIndia
With 43 days to go for the Tokyo Olympic Games to begin, the Indian Olympic Association is staring at a challenging task of making arrangements for a new sports kit for the Indian contingent, but without the China imprint.
 
On June 3, the IOA had unveiled the ceremonial and competition kits in the presence of sports minister Kiren Rijiju.
 
Six days later, the sports kits sporting the logos of a Chinese company, Li Ning, which is an IOA sponsor, has become a controversial issue, considering the relations between India and China.
 
Following directions from the sports ministry, the IOA issued a statement, saying that keeping in mind the sentiments of the fans, Indian athletes’ kit would be without the Chinese company’s logo.
 
This last-minute change of kits seems to have created a challenge to get new kits prepared quickly.
