ATHLETICS- Sprint legend PT Usha has become the latest sportsperson to resign from Indian government's Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) panel.

Usha was appointed as an observer for athletics and was also a member. She has quit both the posts.

She decided to resign from TOPS as it could have resulted in a 'conflict of interest' because she has her own academy - Usha School of Athletics - in Kozhikode.

Usha will continue to be on the advisory panel of the All India Council for Sports (AICS).
