New Delhi : Hockey India is all set to appoint Australian Jason Conrath as the new exercise physiologist of the senior men’s national team after another Aussie, David John, refused to resume duty owing to low salary. Conrath is Bachelor of Science in exercise and health and is currently studying masters in Gold Coast, Australia.
John was with the team in the London Olympics in which India finished 12th after failing to win a single match. It has been learnt that John was hired on a monthly salary of USD 5500 by the Sports Authority of India last year on the recommendation of coach Michael Nobbs. There had been a significant change in the fitness level of players after his arrival. There were reports of his coming back after Nobbs joined the camp in Patiala last week. — PTI
