World Archery conditionally lifted the suspension of the Archery Association of India (AAI) following elections that were held in New Delhi on January 18.
The AAI was suspended since August 5, 2019 and the Indian archers were only allowed to compete under a neutral flag at events that directly affected their qualification chances for the Olympics.
With the suspension being uplifted, archers can now compete in World Archery events under the Indian flag.
AAI has been instructed to update its constitution to clarify athlete membership, develop a strategic plan and resolve other governance issues by the World Archery body.
A progress report is required every three months.
India currently has three men’s and one women’s quota place at Tokyo 2020.
World Archery secretary general Tom Dielen said: “We hope this is the start of a well-governed association in India and will help, where necessary, to develop the strategy that will accomplish this.”
“Indian athletes can now focus on getting ready for the Olympic Games in Tokyo, which is now just six months away.”
