Re: Olympics! Will you be watching?

Was wanting to switch from Netflix to yupp TV, whn just held on * to Olympic swimming on rabbit antenna . And saw the last Olympic swim of Michael Phelps in the men's medley relay. He took the lead back from Britain and the team get the gold and a new Olympic record. Another Olympic history.

* The Aussie women's team entering kind of held me from switching

I'm sick of watching swimming and Phelps winning everything.. It's like there is no javelin, no shortput, no weightlifting, no judo or boxing or pole vault at this olympics.. because American atheletes are not contenders there, so those sports don't exist. The coverage is far from comprehensive.

To win like others I think India need to start buying some African athletes like Qatar, UAE, etc are doing taking a cue from US and Canada. And develop strong programs like the Chinese.

I had another flash. If for government jobs, sports competition s are held instead of exams, see how we win medals.

Knock on wood...India leading Belgium 1-0 at half time in Field Hockey Quarterfinals.

Edit: Now down 3-1 with 8 mins to go.

Re: Olympics! Will you be watching?

....and lost.

Badminton seems to be the only hope at this point for a medal. Anyone else to look out for?

Old story. Milkha Singh came 4th. Though his timing was unbeaten in India for next 20-30 years or so. PT usha came 4th.

Enjoy the carnival, Usain bolt, etc.

Seema Punia was supposed to come up next in women's discuss throw... but looks like all Track & Field events are delayed due to heavy rain.

Yeah, I'm doing that for the most part, but just craving to watch the Tiranga fly high in Rio

Just remembered, we have a shot at wrestling too. Yogi Dutt won a Bronze in London 2012. Of course, past performances do not guarantee future results... especially given the recent trend.

U'll have to contend with enjoying American medals.

Btw, my ordinary US university had olympic size pool, indoor 200m track, 10 wallyball/racquetball courts, etc etc .. You need such facilities with great coaches to practice year round. India is busy putting food on the plate.

Apparently things have improved over the years. But even countries like Ethiopia win medals.
Could be a number of other things besides infrastructure (which is also a big factor).
Like attitude of 'Padhoge Likhoge banoge nawab Kheloge koodoge banoge kharaab'. And our legendary 'Sports Administrators' like we saw in 'Mary Kom.'

"First complete your homework and studies, then go and play."

Just because of this one sentence India has lost thousands of Olympic golds!!
