India off to a Dying start!

India’s campaign got off to dismal start as expected! Anjali Bhagwat, Avneet Kaur Sidhu and Samresh Jung who were being considered (on what basis?) as India’s best bets for medals – did not even qualify! Now, that tells you one of two things:

– the entire Indian shooting team got hit by a BIG psychological barrier simulatenously!
– those who considered them as a “bet for medal” were probably using some Indian National Games benchmarks!!

How can we keep doing this again and again?

Also Tombi Khumujam Devi lost in Judo in a match that lasted only Two and a Half minutes! She lost to Ana Hormigo of Portugal in 48kg category.

Meanwhile the first Gold went to Czech Katerina Emmons (400+103.5) winning the gold at 503.5, while Russian Lioubov Galkina (399+103.1) settled for the silver shooting 502.1. The bronze went to Snjezana Pejcic (399+101.9) who tallied 500.9.

  1. I suspect in India athletes are given opportunities on the basis of “whether you have right connection”. If that is the case, then those who rise to the level of reaching olympic may not necessarily be the best.
