Islamabad, May 18 (ANI): The Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) has decided to shift its proposed training camps for the upcoming Commonwealth games and the Asian Games from Quetta due to security reasons.

The decision has come after Brazilian volleyball coach Augusto Sabbtini refused to join the team for training sessions in Quetta, capital of the insurgency hit Balochistan province.

The camps would now be organised in Islamabad.

"National volleyball coach Augusti Sabbtini refused to go to Quetta with national spikers and the PSB has to reverse his decision," The Nation quoted sources privy to the issue, as saying.

Several training camps are already underway in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi for the upcoming 19th Commonwealth Games from October 3 to 14 in New Delhi, and the 16th Asian Games from November 12 to 27 in Guangzhou, China. (ANI)
