I guess we can just rename the title later and stick to this thread.

Not sure if it is the right thread. IOA has been suspended by the Sports Ministry after Suresh Kalmadi was appointed as the Life President of IOA (Similar to Anil Khanna for AITA). IOC on its part has mentioned that its monitoring the situation.

A bit offtopic but relevant here too. All these sports bodies are suddenly coming up with Life president positions - Have no idea what is the role / responsibility of these positions.

Life time free tickets, first class travels and a cut of the government funding to the association. Quite valuable I must say.

Hmm. If we rename the title later, we may have to re-rename it back. Might as well let this one stay :p

Just seeing the name of the thread in the 'unread topics' gives me goosebumps. ;)

Unluckily we are marching towards it given the fracas which already started by the derecognision of IOC by the sports ministry.

This is another good decision in terms of improvement for Olympics -

Government designates 12 Olympians as National Observers

PT Usha and Anju Bobby George (athletics), Sanjeev Kumar Singh (archery), Aparna Popat (badminton), MC Mary Kom and Akhil Kumar (boxing), Jagbir Singh (hockey), Somdev Devvarman (tennis), Karnam Malleshwari (weightlifting), Sushil Kumar (wrestling), I M Vijayan (football), Khajan Singh (swimming) and Kamlesh Mehta (table tennis).


It is really good list with who is who of Indian sports but surprised to see Football, Table Tennis and Swimming appearing there where we have virtually no chance of a medal in next 2-3 Olympics ( not even of a chance of qualifying in football).

Also -

The National Observers will assist the Government, Sports Authority of India, and National Sports Federations (NSFs) concerned including Indian Olympic Association in the preparation and implementation of the long term development plan with respect to high priority and priority sports covering all aspects including selection policy, quality specifications for National Camps, long term athlete development plan, coaching development, development of technical officials and monitoring & evaluation of athlete performance," said a sports ministry statement.
.


With someone like Somdev there with his recent record of strident criticism of AITA, will he be consulted by the federation in terms of selection of teams, coaching etc. ?
