India give more priority to its cricketers; not the Olympians. DiscussThe reality of Indian Olympians has again revealed by Dutee Chand, the sprinter from Odisha who travels to Rio in economy class, while officials fly business class.
"I flew alone from Hyderabad; my coach couldn't come with me. Managers and others are given business class tickets but players are being given economy class. It was a 36 hours. I couldn't get proper sleep or rest. If players are treated like this what kind of performance will we give in Olympics?" says the 20-yr old Dutee Chand, who will be participating in the 100mt category. She further said, "If the comfortable seats were available they should have been availed to the athletes, after all, they are headed to the most important event of their life".
