It is more on general sports development but decided to put it here as results can be measured from the performance in Tokyo.

Union Cabinet approves revamping of Khelo India Program with wide-ranging interventions

And this Rathore's interview on the scheme-

A massive overhaul of sporting system is underway: Sports minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore

Rs. 5,00,000 per year for 1000 athletes looks good.

Just a food for thought.

The title of this thread suddenly sounds funny to me. The literal meaning according to Medical Dictionary - Existing or taking place immediately before death Ha ha ha!

Wanted to post in 2020 Olympics thread but I felt the tone matches that of the article itself.

Neeraj Chopra's coach complains of poor equipment, diet

If you land someone like Hohn as a coach, it is of paramount importance that what he says should be implemented with top priority. In fact we should be trying to be one step ahead if we want to compete with European standards, rather we are two behind. I don't even wanna imagine how the German team must be preparing right now in contrast to our system

Damn. Did the coach expect good things to come out of this? I doubt it. There is more chance that they will give further support only if Neeraj changes his coach to somebody else. They will go find some guy somewhere abroad, who they will say is a better coach and then Hohn. Neeraj will refuse. He will lose more moths. Finally 4 months before Olympics, they will probably give him a bunch of support to avoid blame (and to put blame on Neeraj for not taking up the offer to support all this while)... All too late. There is more chance for that, than for SAI and others to stat helping, saying "we goofed". Hopefully some private party will step in now and help.

Well, all I see is "mouth action". Nothing seems to have been done. All they did is say that things are being done :-( If it was truly being done, the sports minister would have said that it was done or will be done by such and such a date or has been started by this and this authority. This sees like a PR effort to get the press away. I will only believe things after I hear that things are done.

I want to believe Rathore but I agree that we need to see some action. Why is that we screw up so badly every time?
