Did anyone else get redirected to a $1,000 Amazon card winner bogus site? I get this frequently when visiting Indian news sites. Very annoying.

Sorry about this. Maybe I will provide the Google News search site from which you can go directly. Search for "India world london squad" and skip over the cricket links.

Prasen, it is not your fault. It happens even from the google news search site to me. Devious folks.

Frankly nowhere ... Only having an interest in Neeraj Chopra's performance, who is our only (future) hope and true world-class athlete.

I assure you that Indian officials and staff will have a prominent presence. They may even win the gold medal. We know all about athletes that is to be known.

I doubt it. :D. Most of them will be nowhere near the stadium. But you will definitely see them shopping, sightseeing etc.

Davinder Singh Kang has become the first Indian to qualify for the final round of the javelin throw World Championships with the final throw as he sent the spear to a distance of 84.22m ... Neeraj Chopra failed to cross the automatic final round qualification mark of 83m in his three attempts with his best effort of 82.26m.

Wow, that is excellent performance by Davinder Singh Kang just when everyone expected junior world champion Neeraj Chopra to produce results. Neeraj was somewhat disappointing.

This is a report on the javelin qualification -

Nice story about Davinder Singh Kang, but bad luck to Neeraj Chopra. A world class coach is desperately the need of the hour.
