Athletes get the feel of new track

After a pooja, Powell, along with Department of Youth Services and Sports officials, athletes and coaches had a feel of the track which will experience the real heat of competition when the State junior meet begins on Tuesday.
Sports minister Goolihatti D Shekhar could not attend the function, given the political situation in the State.

Even though the work on the track was completed in August, the delay in opening it had raised concerns all around and the junior meet was under a cloud till the last minute.
