    Brazil showcased its rich history and cultural heritage, combined with Rio's famous 'Samba' dance, as the 31st Olympic Games was officially launched with a subtle yet powerful message of global warming plaguing the world in a glittering opening ceremony.

    Deepika Kumari once again faltered under pressure to miss a target as India's medal hope in the women's team event received a big blow by finishing a lowly seventh in the archery ranking round of the Rio Olympic Games here on Friday.
    Hours after Atanu Das impressed on his Olympic debut by finishing a creditable fifth in the individual section, India's star archer Deepika put up one of her most inconsistent displays to finish a poor 20th with a score of 640 out of 720.
    In her third Olympics, senior archer Bombayla Devi Laishram shot 638 to finish 24th while Laxmirani Majhi finished a lowly 43rd with 614 points.
    Eyeing their eighth gold from as many editions, Koreans lived up to their reputation with Choi Misun, Chang Hye Jin and Ki Bo Bae making it top three.

    The three women archers' wayward performance will affect their medal prospects in the team event where they got a ranking of seventh and open their campaign against Colombia who were ranked 10th.
    If they manage to advance, India may face second ranked Russia and third ranked China in their prospective quarters and semifinal clashes.
    The double Commonwealth Games gold medalist, Deepika, led by one point after 30 arrows only to slip in the sixth end when she shot a poor 49 with scores of 9,9,8,8,8,7.
    The worst happened in the last arrow of the seventh end when she drew a blank by completely missing the target.
    Deepika raised her game from the next five ends by securing 13 perfect 10s from 30 arrows but it could only raise her ranking up to 20.

    Was monitoring from many days and excited, even newspapers of international media were full of Indian Hoped from players.
    Just didn't even bother or discuss here because no time is left from conventional issues which I discuss here.:)

    Dattu the rower qualified, it seems he started in rowing after 2012 olympics. I's say this is a achievement.

    And interestingly he comes from a drought hit region.

    Not a great start at all .
    Leander peas , Rohan bopanna loose in first round .
    Ayonika paal , Apoorvi chandela looses in shooting .
    Manika batra , Mouma das also loose in table tennis .
    That was not expected at all !!!!!!!

    Mens hockey team easily beats Ireland .

    Jitu rai and Gurpreet singh still has to prove himself .
    Let's hope for the best .....
