  NYSF introduces 1st rulebook for yogasana sports
12 Nov 2021
 

Yogasana as a sport became more competitive and structured with National Yogasana Sports Federation (NYSF) introducting the first rulebook of the world for yogasana sports at the ongoing 2nd National Yogasana Championship at Biju Patnaik Indoor Stadium in KIIT, Bhubaneshwar today.

The comprehensive rulebook for yogasana sports is a stepping stone for India to eye a spot as future Olympics discipline, claimed a NYSF press release. Olympic Code of Points has been analysed and studied to develop the rulebook. As many as 300 yogasanas have been included in the rulebook, which was introduced after two years of intense research and recommendations of experts from across the world.

 

NYSF technical committee members Umang Dawn (Athlete and Director of Technical Committee), Sanjay Malpani (Convener of Technical Committee) and other technical committee members have tirelessly worked with 20 experts from different states on developing the rulebook.

Judges from across the country who are a part of the National Yogasana Sports Championships have been given training on this rulebook so as to ensure that the marking of each competition is transparent, objective and fair. Detailed guidelines have been given for awarding points in accordance with parameters such as holding, mounting, dismounting, toe and hand pointing, etc.

Talking about the structure of National Yogasana Sports Championships, NYSF Secretary General Dr Jaideep Arya said “The championships have been structured in line with modern sports competitions and they are equipped with cutting-edge technology.

To make judging transparent, specially designed software is being used to record scores in an anonymous and unbiased system.Live score sheets are displayed and athletes, coaches, and parents can also view these scores on real-time basis on their mobile phones.

Work is underway to revolutionize the judging and scoring system with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Biometrics. Skeleton scans for each posture would be recorded and matched with the contestant for scoring purposes in the future,’’ he elaborated.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra yogasana athletes continued their complete dominance by bagging all four gold and silver medals in artistic pair events. The four bronze medals were shared by Karnataka, Pondicherry, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal.
