Today schools are no more feeders to the national stream in athletics, unlike the 1980s and 90s where the schools and both ministries of education and sports worked hand in hand. Presently the lifestyles of students have changed drastically and it’s a major setback from the country’s perspective. The system is not effective enough today to secure the talented students’ future unlike then. The officials are seen working hard to put things back on track but it will take time to produce results.
