Re: Commonwealth Games, 2022

Now, I’m searching the internet for the definition of sport. My first find, but probably it will never be resolved because everyone has their own measure. https://www.forbes.com/sites/leighsteinberg/2018/07/28/what-defines-a-sport/ This is actually pretty good. https://www.topendsports.com/sport/que...

Re: Commonwealth Games, 2022

We should move these posts to some other thread rather than being in the commonwealth games thread.

Re: Rutuja Bhosale thread

Yes, this one is along the expected lines. The second set score is actually very encouraging. Sometimes, even losses build your confidence.

Re: Commonwealth Games, 2022

Right...let's move all these games (add wrestling too) to "World Military Games" and be done with it...never mind if the nation of 1 billion loses the only few medals it gets in these games in the summer Olympics. :p That would be fine by me. But, not for everyone. I don’t have as strong views abou...

If it’s available, please tabulate how many are Army employees or working at other government enterprises.

Boxing is not a sport; period. One could argue whether shooting and archery are worthy of being called a sport either.

Didn’t we lose by the same or similar margin to Australia at Montreal Olympics?

Re: Commonwealth Games, 2022

Nadeem posted a twitter message just before the event asking for his nation’s blessings but claiming he has a knee and elbow injury. Given that, something doesn’t add up. Regardless, congrats.

Re: Commonwealth Games, 2022

I don’t know; against Australia in a World Cup, we choke. Kaur probably played the best innings of her life in knocking Australia out here in England; albeit, I think it was a semi-final of the 50 over World Cup. We will need another of those special ones. My favorite Mandhana will have to lead this...

Re: Commonwealth Games, 2022

But, Australia is hammering India in cricket, as they almost always do in finals. It will need a miracle to win this.

Re: T20 World Cup, 2022

Our biggest problem is that we usually reserve our worst performance for big matches. And, when it does wrong, it really goes wrong. But, there is no way to “select” your way out of this malaise. It is more mental. I think the recent CWG diversity of medals is showing that we are now confident and b...

Re: Commonwealth Games, 2022

Fifth or fourth place for the relay team?

From Indian express live update:

India finish fourth in Women's 4 x 100m Relay. Nigeria, England and Jamaica with the podium finish.

Edit: fifth looks correct based on the timings. The headline is incorrect. Australia placed fourth.

Re: Commonwealth Games, 2022

How long have para medals been part of total count? What was our split at the last CWG?
