Four times International Gold medalist and sixteen times gold medal winner Koijam Usharani from Manipur hailing from Loitang Khullen Village have been compelled to quit playing due to poverty and lack of government assistance. “I have been selected innumerable times for International games but I have missed all opportunities due to financial constraints. And that discouraged me to play further for the country. I would like to request the government to help me and other players who are struggling like me,” said Koijam Usharani.
