Talking to reporters after chairing the executive committee meeting of the Pakistan Olympic Association at a local hotel, President Pakistan Olympic Association Arif Hasan denied the media reports of trimming the contingent to 140.

The POA chief said he is in contact with the PSB and there is no such move and the contingent of 245 would participate as per previous announcement.

He said entries of all 245 athletes and officials had been approved by the organising committee of the Asian gala and training camps are already in progress.

Therefore, there is no room to cut down the size of the contingent because the country would face penalties.
