Buenos Aires [Argentina], Oct 8 (ANI): Chef de mission of the Indian contingent for the Youth Olympics, Gurudutta Bhakta, has said that the food-related issues being faced by national athletes will be sorted soon.
Bhakta's statement came after players participating in the prestigious tournament complained about the non-availability of Indian food at the event.
Speaking to ANI, Bhakta said, "There were complaints by athletes regarding the food here because only Asian food is available and there is no Indian food. We spoke to the organisers and now they have assured us that they will arrange Indian food, as well."
Bhakta, however, denied reports which stated that one of the athletes fainted due to non-availability of food.
So far, India have clinched two silver medals in the tournament.
While Tushar Mane bagged a silver medal in the Men's 10m air rifle event, Tababi Devi Thangjam finished second on the podium in the Women's 44kg judo event. (ANI)
