Afro Asian Games

By the way, where are our next set of athletes. I am talking runners. Nothing much has surfaced in the last 2-3 years it seems from the younger ranks. Are we going to have to wait for 3-4 years till PT Usha starts shurning out some good runners from her new academy? Jay I think the reason Indians d...

Rugby

Bhushan, I have caught Rugby on tv couple of times. I see a guy placing the ball behind him when he is tackled and his team mate picks the ball and run!!! How does it work? What is TRY? When do they turn the ball over to opponent? When a person is tackled? too lazy to look up the rules on the web, s...

2003 -- What a year for Indian sport!

I am just surprised Prasen calls himself a realist after predicting that India might win couple of medals (athletics, weight lifting and gold in tennis). I would call him optimist. Guys I am not pessimist, but an Indian and as an Indian predicting even one medal seems very optimistic to me!!!! :wink...

Vijay Singh

Guys any idea how many generations since his ancestors moved to FIJI. As far as his feelings for India are concerned, I don't think he has great affinity for india (may be just curious about his indian roots) Being the only indian name on the PGA tour (that too consistent on week/week basis), he has...

Jeev Milkha Singh - US Open

I guess same old story with Jeev faltering in the last two rounds !!! How old is Jeev ? Are there any hopes of him overcoming his last round hurdles (jinx) and make it to the elite level?

Vijay Singh

Vijay couldn't close the deal today .. He has to finish in the top 3 to ensure that he wins the money title or hope that Tiger doesnt win the championship.

He has a lead of around 768,494 over Tiger for now ..

I hoped that I would be congratulating Daniel and Vijay on my 100th post. But unfortunately both of them didnt make it this week. But there is another chance for both of them. Hope they can make it...

Vijay Singh

I guess he need to work on his media skills. I don't know if you guys had a chance to see the press conference, I wish i had seen the full press conference. He was saying something to the effect, he doesnt feel comfortable giving one on one interviews with media becoz they tend to misinterpret a lot...

Daniel Chopra - PGA Tour

Ajay, I agree with you. But I guess Daniel probably wants to keep us on the toes. Everybody would have been happy if he had managed to have a lead of 10000. I am happy atleast he was able to get his bad rounds off his plate. NOw with two bad rounds, he has a much better chance of going full steam. F...

2003 -- What a year for Indian sport!

I guess I would include the K. Sasikiran's effort in chess to reach 2600 ELO points in chess (Super GM) and become second indian to do that.

How about another thread to predict Who will be the best indian sportsman next year (cricket excluded) , somebody who will take the world by surprise?

Daniel Chopra - PGA Tour

Nerve wracking last week huh!!! I think Daniel chose a perfect week not to have his great game seeing that he just fell down by a spot. Inspite of the comments of some that they prefer to be on inside looking out, I think Daniel is better off trying to break in rather than trying to stay in.. My fee...
