The ATBP Centre which focuses on producing high-end generation in the field of clinical fitness, sports science and rehabilitation will be the most advanced centre among its chain in the country. With the institution of the centre, Bhubaneswar became the fourth city to house an ATBP following Mohali, Delhi and Bengaluru.
The ATBP centre will offer technical help and expertise in physiotherapy and rehabilitation while the State government pledged to meet all infrastructural needs.
The services at the centre would include performance enhancement, injury prevention and management, biomechanics, physiology testing and training, recovery as well as strength and conditioning training.
The Chief Minister said it will encourage athletes to use sports science to enhance their performance.
“Coaching has always been good in Odisha, but now with best available technology, our athletes will have access to a state of the art, world class sports medicine and rehab setup,” he added.
Olympian shooter Abhinav Bindra said, “The centre has been made with the aim of encouraging athletes to use sports science to add value to their training routine. With cutting edge technology from all over the world in physiology, biomechanics, functional training and recovery, we aspire to take the best care of the athletes with us.”
“As the state govt has no longer many high-performance coaching centres in various disciplines to supply higher coaching to sportsperson in Odisha and outside, the ABTP will likely be a super boon for them,” said a sports division respectable.
