Volker Hermann on Sunday announced his resignation from the position of India’s athletics High Performance director. Hermann said in a statement that he put on his Facebook page that he had resigned from the position “three weeks ago” after he was convinced that he could no longer “meet the self-imposed expectations” that came from being the Athletics Federation of India’s (AFI) high performance director.
“After one and a half fruitful and inspiring years in India, the day has come when I could not any longer meet the self-imposed expectations coming along with the role of AFI’s high performance director, which is why I resigned from my position three weeks ago,” said Hermann in his statement, adding: “I believe that athletics in India has a great future ahead of it. It also needs players with a strong, confident, and independent mindset to succeed at world stage.”
