    India’s time starts now if it is serious about Mission Olympic 2020

    The question now remains whether the country can not just improve its Rio tally, but if it can acquit itself creditably at Tokyo, and what it must do to get there.

    Want to do good in Olympics? Then its better that each and everyone starts thinking like a sports person.

    Recently was listening to NaMo on Mann Ki Baat this week. He had touched a very valid point in it, when he mentioned our mindset regarding sport. Time has come when we have to come out of our dakianusi mindset of 'Padhoge likhoge banoge Nawab, Kheloge kudoge hoge kharaab'.

    This particular mindset of our parents and now ours is holding us back. How many of us or our parents has supported their child in sports. Extra curricular activity in India has always been dancing, singing, acting ......... Its good for you to wake up early in morning and practice Raag Bhairavi or Sitar, but if you get out in the open to kick a ball its a wastage of time. Just a couple of days ago I was watching an ad of some Junior dance competition in TV. It was amazing to watch some of the kids being so flexible and doing some eccentric steps in it. I wondered, whether their parents had ever thought of encouraging their kids to train in gymnast or fig skating? Ofcourse not. Why would they? Because winning a talent show would bring them somewhere nearer to glam industry whereas in pursuing a class of gymnast you would have to toll for 5 6 years to be able to compete in any national level games.

    We ourself would have to change first if we want to bring on any change.

    i propose an impossible measure during the time the 'Olympics task force' does its job - simply ban ckt & all the emotional atyachaar naach-gaana shows, and make martial arts/exercises & fauji trng compulsory!

    The super villains that accompanied India’s Olympians to party and click selfies in Rio

    [​IMG]

    India had sent its largest contingent ever to Rio Olympics and the country won two medals-one silver, one bronze-at the sporting extravaganza.

    As wrestler Sakshi Malik and shuttler PV Sindhu won bronze and silver medals, respectively, other sportspersons such as gymnast Dipa Karmakar, marathon runner OP Jaisha, woman golfer Aditi Ashok, rower Dattu Bhokanal, etc won hearts.

    Our sportspersons did perform well at the Rio Olympics considering the treatment and infrastructure given to the athletes in India.

    If our sportspersons can achieve this feat and represent India in Olympics with minimal push given to sports in India, imagine the medals we would bag if other games are taken seriously in the cricket-frenzy nation.

    The infrastructure is lacklustre due to the apathy of the officials and this time the world saw it too at the Rio Olympics.

    Our officials who went along with the sportspersons acted as villains who did not even think twice about the athletes and had a gala time of their own.

    Here are the super villains from India who went to Rio Olympics and brought nothing to the country, but shame. They should learn something about sportsmanship from our athletes.

    OP Jaisha fainted due to dehydration
    [​IMG]
    At Rio Olympics, India’s national record holder in marathon O P Jaisha’s timing was 2 hours 47 minutes as compared to her timing in Beijing Worlds last year at 2 hours 34 minutes. All thanks to the callous attitude of Indian officials, Jaisha was dehydrated. Marathon runners who run for 42 kms need water and Olympic officials set up water stations that provide glucose biscuits, energy gels, sponges at every 2.5 kms. Our Indian officials were not at the stations and Jaisha had to drink water at every 8 kms that too given by the Rio Olympic officials, and not the Indian officials. Due to dehydration, she collapsed at the finish line, regaining consciousness after THREE HOURS.

    No physiotherapist for Dipa Karmakar
    [​IMG]
    Gymnast Dipa Karmakar finished fourth and won many hearts with her inspiring performance. Even she had to face apathy of officials as her physiotherapist was not allowed to accompany her to Rio. It was only after Dipa entered the finals, her physiotherapist was rushed to Rio Olympics.

    Vikas Krishan
    [​IMG]
    A lot of hopes were pinned on Indian boxer Vikas Krishan but they were shattered when he lost to Uzbekistan’s boxer. Well, he gave his 200% and had to face defeat due to our officials. Krishan said he could have got the better of his opponent had he been given access to compete with high-quality boxers outside the country. Since world boxing body, AIBA, has suspended the Indian Amateur Boxing Federation since 2012 on charges of manipulations in its elections, there is no exposure for our boxers at all.

    Dutee Chand

    Athlete Dutee Chand was compelled to travel in economy class for 36 hours while the officials travelled in business class

    Nitendra Rawat did not have proper running shoes!
    [​IMG]
    Qualifying for Rio Olympics was not enough. Hawaldar with the Indian Army Nitendra Rawat qualified for the 2016 Rio Olympics but battled for a decent pair of running shoes.

    Vijay Goel
    [​IMG]
    Vijay Goel suffered foot-in-mouth moments and was also officially reprimanded. He forced exhausted athletes to click selfies with him and got names of athletes wrong time after time on Twitter. He misspelt Dipa Karmakar’s name and mistook Dutee Chand for Srabani Nanda.

    Pawandeep Tony Singh
    [​IMG]
    This time India’s chief medical officer at the Rio Olympics was a radiologist- Pawandeep Tony Singh. He knew zilch about injuries and medicines and treatment for our athletes and the only solution for all the pains he had was Combiflam. He was seen having a gala time, hanging out by the pool, drinking from 3 pm. Tony Singh is the son of Tarlochan Singh, who is the Vice President of the Indian Olympic Association.

    Raninder Singh
    [​IMG]
    Raninder Singh, who is the scion of the Patiala family and the son of Congress’ chief ministerial candidate in Punjab, Amarinder Singh and President of the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI), was partying at Rio and clicked pictures and floated WhatsApp groups.

    The ultimate one
    [​IMG]
    Reportedly, IOA President Narayana Ramachandran did not meet the Indian athletes before or during Rio Olympics.

    Rio Paralympics 2016: Mariyappan Thangavelu Wins Gold in Men's High Jump

    Rio de Janeiro:
    India's Mariyappan Thangavelu created history on Friday night by winning a gold medal in the men's high jump T-42 event at the Rio Paralympics.

    His compatriot Varun Singh Bhati clinched the bronze medal the same event.

    While Thangavelu made a leap of 1.89 metres, Bhati jumped his personal best of 1.86 metres to finish third.

    India's other medal prospect Sharad Kumar finished at number six.

    US's Sam Grewe bagged the silver medal.

    The event witnessed a fierce contest with six of the 12 athletes clearing the 1.74m mark in their first eight attempts.

    But Mariyappan became a part of the leading group after his 10th attempt when he cleared the 1.77m mark along with Lukasz Mamczarz of Poland, China's Zhiqiang Zhing and Kumar.

    He then went into the lead along with Bhati as both managed to clear the 1.83m mark.

    Kumar however, could not improve his performance and eventually crashed out of medal contention.

    Grewe pushed Mariyappan and Bhati to the joint second position by clearing 1.86m to grab the top spot.

    But both Indians made a strong comeback by equalling the height to share the pole position.

    Mariyappan eventually made sure of the gold with an effort of 1.89m in his final attempt while Grewe and Bhati's finished with best efforts of 1.86m.

    I always dreamt about any Southern state district close to the beach developed as an Olympic city. The obsession of pouring money into dead and dull north hinterlands is sickeningly corrupt, shallow and reflects the blurry vision of a dumb nation.

    The grand entry from the gates of massive Bharat Mata temple. An Ashoka Emblem of India shaped multi-story dynamic main stadium with ocean views (Called as Lion's Den). Seamless Glass bubble shaped massive swimming complex. Underwater tunnels for exhibitions and museums. Surrounded by skyscrapers, a network of shiny metro stations, international airport, surrounded by water lakes and forests. Surrounding suburbs built with southern architectures homes and temple designs...................................

    Really Sad....

    Hosting Olympics is a sybmbolic achievement itself. All of major powers have hosted Olympics at least once.
    [​IMG]
    Olympics wouldn't only have invited a large number of tourists and coverage from around the world but a permanent change in annual tourist arrivals eventually.

    The name of hosting Indian city would have become familiar to world.

    Olympics are as important as FIFA & Asian games etc. things to integrate, familiarize amd hyphenate India to greater world; the real relevant world and ending alignment with our neighborhood.

    Right now hosting Olympics is so exorbitantly expensive that not many countries can afford to; and worse the returns are also not that great as they used to be! There's a lot of other organized sporting happening worldwide all through the year!

    Not hosting now but 2032. India was supposed to be integrated with "big countries" in every way eventually.

    2030 was perfect time when India would have left lower middle income group.

    IOC bars India from hosting sports events
    Thought over it and feeling better now. We don't need those losers.
    We should've drawn recognition from Pakistan in 1950s or 70s but as we haven't, its going to pain for a while.

    Hosting Olympics is a prestige issue for caucasians, who invariably try to trace themselves as the decendentd of erstwhile Greek population. Just like pakis think they are descentdent of Mahmud of ghazni and taimur and Mughals. Olympics is immaterial to the common Indian public who is trying to make ends meet. Good that ioc has banned India. That money can be spent elsewhere, and for Indian people.
