Lame excuses for Olympic failures

Indian contingent’s super failure saga continued at greatest sporting arena in the world, The Olympics, which are underway in London. While sports lovers from India were witness to many spellbounding awesome performances from sports persons representing various countries, they are totally disappointed at the performances by Indian sports persons. Barring a few like Saina Nehwal, Gagan Narang, Vijeyendra Singh, Vijay Kumar andry Kom who bucked the trend and system failures others failed miserably shocking sports lovers. Medal hopes like Wolrd no 1 in archery Deepika Kumari, world champions Ronjon Sodhi and others, even medal hopes Sania Mirza, Jwala Gutta and Diju all did not live up to their expectations. True, world champions and gold medalists from last olympics from other countries also failed but not with out a strong fight. But if one takes Deepika Kumari world no 1 in archery, she failed to shoot even 9 in first round while olympic stage fired her unknown opponent to continuously score 10 points. Similar is the case of Boxer Vijayendra Singh who lost his bout in QF when he defeated the same opponent earlier couple of months back blanking him cmpletely. Jwala fpr example prior to the start of the olympics was seen busy attending shop openings, fashion shows and film audio releases rather than practicing unlike Saina Nehwal. Hockey team’s miserable performance is the highlight in India’s failures.
Now all start blaming Cricket for their failures, lack of encouragement from authorities, lack of facilities and what not. They even come up with trivial excuses. But one should know no person likes to see and encourage a sport where sports persons loses continuously disappointing sports lovers. Previously people used to see Hockey as they won 8 gold medals at Olympics, many world cups etc. The moment hockey team lost its sheen and started losing continuously they stopped watching it. They switched over to cricket as cricketers victories coincided with hockey team’s failures. Coming to other excuses, one should not blame the system as nothing can stop talent from winning if the person has fire and burning desire to succeed. Many african countries and small nations won gold at olympics due to their desire to succeed even though they struggled in utter poverty. Now one should understand what hard work Gold medalist Abhinav Bindra might have put.
