    New Delhi: The Indian flag will fly again at the Olympics with the international games body revoking the suspension of the Indian Olympic Association.

    The Indian body was suspended in December 2012. Its suspension was revoked after new elections.

    Indian athletes can now carry their flag at the closing ceremony of the Winter Games in Sochi.

The reinstatement of India's Olympic Association for the Sochi Games meant more than just a flag change for Alpine skier Himanshu Thakur. It meant he was provided with skis, boots and poles for next week's giant slalom race. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno)
