Inderjeet started training in the Aphelion Athletics Club in Pennsylvania in November along with his personal coaches Shakti Singh and Pritam Singh.

“When I trained in India, all I did was to push myself as hard as I could, without realising that I was burning myself out. Here at the Aphelion Club, the trainers have developed a new training schedule for me that my personal coaches and I strictly follow,” Inderjeet said.

Inderjeet, who already qualified for Rio thanks to his throw of 20.65m in the Federation Cup, is confident about producing his best at the Olympic Games.

“The new methodology has taught me how to channelize my efforts to get optimal results. I am very confident of putting up a good show at Rio next year. I am working on every minute aspect of my training to get the best out of me,” he added.

The 27-year-old recalled his days in India and said that claimed that he is much more relaxed now.

“I am really relaxed now and can focus on my training. Back in India, I had so many things running in my mind. My mother has borrowed a lot of money for my training and I sometimes worried about repaying it,” he said.
