Re: Indian Boxing Thread

Just winning 3 bronze, doesn't give me enough hope in women's boxing. We will get some tough draw always in Olympics and manage to lose.It will be zero medals in women's boxing.

Re: Indian Boxing Thread

Being the doubting Thomas that i am, i think may be we didn't send the best athlete in 51 Kg. Mary Kom asked the WFI to skip trials and and just told them to select her for the world Championship and they obliged her. She was supposed to have contest with Nikhat Zareen in trials. Why did she skip tr...

Re: Misc. news about Indian hockey

Our results in Belgium are encouraging, and may be we are playing at Tier 1 level rather than tier 2 as was thought earlier. This is probably not because of us making any great strides but the European teams sliding may be due to funding issues. Economy does play some role in development of sports, ...

Re: Indian Volleyball

Pak could pull a set from China, for us it was a straight 0-3 defeat with China. Doesn’t auger well.Are Pak that good in Volleyball now?

Is technique change an euphemism for spinach now? Any Euphemism chosen should also be able to convey other things we want to know.If we use spinach as euphemism then we can say whether spinach was home grown, imported from east Europe or if performance is low due to scarcity of spinach etc. Techniq...

Re: China Open / Korea Open - Sep 2019

World rankings won’t be used for Olympics qualification and are different from Race to Tokyo rankings. Race to Tokyo ranking is based on points earned during the Olympics qualification period which is April 29, 2019 to April 26, 2020. So we are still very early in the period and these rankings can b...

Re: Tokyo Olympics 2020 projections

Are we tracking this Sreeshankar in long jump and think he may not even make finals? I was not aware he did a 8.2m, was following only until Asian games where he did 7.95m. https://m.mensxp.com/sports/other-sports/55236-here-s-why-this-20yo-indian-long-jump-record-holder-is-a-top-medal-prospect-at-o...

Can anyone tell if we just need to win that ONE game with Pak or those other below par hockey nations to directly qualify for Olympics or is that match one of the other matches to follow for qualification?

Re: Indian Shooting thread

Either we are well on our way to our best ever Olympics by then or we are dealt damage which we won't recover from. You mean our hopes will have been shot early? Or our hopes will get a shot in the arm Every shot can’t bring down the bird, so let’s keep our expectations in check on the first two da...

What’s the worst World Cup performance we had in this olympics qualification cycle does anyone remember? Comparing medal events in 2016 and 2020, 2016 : we had 6 rifle/pistol events for Men and 3...
