AP political scenario may be volatile and there may be lack of infrastructure and basic facilities in many departments. However some precociously talented few are bringing glory to Andhra Pradesh turning torch bearers for the state at the world’s greatest sporting arena ‘The Olympics’ at London. Though the performance of Indian Sportspersons doesn’t bring any cheer to the Country and millions of people, sports persons like Gagan Narang, Saina Nehwal, Jwala Gutta and Parupalli Kashyap did Country proud with their performance.
Gagan Narag shot bronze in shooting where Golden boy Abhinav Bindra from 2008 Olympics unfortunately failed to qualify to the finals. Saina Nehwal reached the semis of Badmintion and she has got all that in her to gun for gold. Parupalli Kashyap may have lost in quarters but he in reaching there created a record to become the first Indian to do so and in the process defeated high ranking opponents shocking badmintion fraternity.
Jwala Gutta was unfortunate not to make it to the next round in women’s doubles in badminton but it was not due to lack of performance but due to Japanese players losing their math to Chinese Taipe. Sania Mirza along with Paes reached the quarters of mixed doubles in Tennis.One must salute this people, who are pride of Andhra Pradesh who in-spite of lack of proper infrastructure and facilities matched the world’s best talent.
