3 Indian Athletes at Vancouver Olympics 2010!!




Hello all,

You might be happy to note that this time, there are 3 athletes from India competing at Vancouver Olympics.
(http://www.vancouver2010.com/olympic-athletes/index_cf-PU.html?cat6=&cat1=43170&q=--+Keywords+--)

Siva Kesavan for Luge - he has been participating since at least 2 winter games. Last time he was the only participant from India. This time there are two more - both from Indian Army (Tashi Lundup and Jamyang Namgial) participating in ski events.

As usual, people from our motherland, with more than 1 Billion people and some of the best year-round snow conditions in earth, continue to disappoint. In fact, there is no mention of winter Olympic games (and Indian participation) on IOA website. Of course, we have 2 more than Pakistan :)

I can ski and skate and curl - but not good enough to meet qualifying standards of Olympics.

So let us all wish our Indian and Canadian athletes all the best!!

Do they really play any other sports than Cricket ?

And in cricket too, half of the countries are refusing to play either in their homeland or against them

:confused:

India and Winter Olympics
3 athlete and 5 official . Always a story with India team and one of the official is a hotel owner in Srinagar , who has nothing to do with sports.

He is a part of the Gang because he is taking care of all the expences incurred , What is our Govt doing and where all the taxpayers money going....
