'Work from home' for hockey wrong strategy, says Olympian

If you can't go to the gym, you can always bring the gym to your home - that was the first paragraph of Jugjet Singh's article in New Straits Times.

National hockey coach Arul Selvaraj was quoted in the article as saying:

"Many have invested in treadmills and exercise bikes knowing very well that the Covid-19 pandemic is here to stay for a longer time than expected.

Although it is not as conducive as training on the artificial pitch, my players have given their best so far and are not holding back in their workout routines at home.

And those with 'a gym at home' have invested for their future although exercise machines are expensive.

They have made themselves as comfortable as possible while waiting for the pandemic to ease."

However, Olympian and former international hockey player Maninderjit Singh calls it a "wrong strategy".

This line caught my attention - "After all, full time athletes with salary."

A case of taking the concept of work from home too literally?
