Veteran Lenny D’Gama will be the only Indian Technical official at the Tokyo Olympics 2020. He will be subjected to evaluating the referees and judge along with two other officials.
The 67-year-old has decades’ experience as a referee and a judge. He also happens to be an experienced technical officer in Goa. D’Gama will be leaving for Tokyo this evening, after fulfilling the COVID-19 related protocol requirements, an official source told PTI.
“It is a great thing that Lenny is going. Having your country’s presence in this panel is always seen as a matter of prestige,” said Brig (retd) P K M Raja, who has been a technical official as well and was a referee/judge at the 2004 Athens Olympics.
