That said Cricket and Squash may be included in LA 2028. 

 

Strangely Lacrosse and Flag Football are also in contention. Sadly no Compound Archery.

 

Given Olympics' fixation on the number of countries playing a sport, how does Flag Football and Lacrosse fit in?

Asian shooters to shoot for Paris quotas at the Asian championships.

Asian Games had no quotas for the Olympics. Would be good to see how many shooters continue to do well here. 

Nice read. Indian Olympic Association’s (IOA) vice-president Gagan Narang is a seasoned campaigner 

 

"Going back to a few weeks before the contingent flew to China, a first-of-its-kind ‘war room’ was set-up at the Karni Singh shooting range in Delhi. Creating a simulated match environment, the shooters’ breathing patterns, heart beat, mind/body reactions in pressure situations were monitored to better understand and chalk strategies to minimise their impact and optimise performance during actual competition"

Well the recurve team have South Korean gold medals winning coach since April 2023...(Olympics have recurve medal events only, not compound archery events)

This is old news. We didn't see very good results in the individuals. The team events are very tough in the Olympics. They have to shine as individuals to have a chance!

I agree. One would think coach will need some time to show results, he got 4 months till now...maybe the athletes haven't got it, we will see.

Wasting money in Gujarat...  Money Should be invested elsewhere.  Shocking numbers.

While I agree that there should be parity in terms of money allocated .. it would be interesting to see how much was invested into things like cricket stadia - which Gujarat seems to have a lot of vs other states like Haryana and Punjab which do not.

 

Also, a lot of the medal winners are supported by NGOs like the Olympic Gold Quest, and PSUs like Railways, Indian Army etc. and not by the state federations. So a bit misleading clearly intended to outrage and not inform.
