Overview of games
Games are the integral part of personal life. Games keep us fit and help us to lead a healthy life in the society. We are playing games as per our choice, stamina, capacity and as per our age. If anyone becomes perfect in these games then wants to play that games for his self pride then for state level, national level and world level. There are many world level championships like Olympic Games, common wealth games, Asian games etc. In these games players are fighting for to win the medal. When anyone player won the medal in these games that medal represents the county of the athletes. To win the medal for their country is great achievement for that player.
Due to tough competition for the winning the medal in these games, players are using abuse substances to win the medal. Which are not permitted by international sports agencies. That is why before take part in these games, dope test are conducted by the national anti doping agency for the athletes before take participates in the games. If any player had taken any abuse substances like parabolic asteroid, ginseng, etc. found positive in the report. I mean dope test is positive for that athlete. After the report of dope test is positive athletes cannot take part in the games. If any player found dope test positive it's a shame on the athletes as well as the country. There is very strict punishment for doping. The punishment is given to athletes as per the dope test report. Sometimes athletes are banned for two year or sometimes athletes are banned for life time for participation in the games.
Recently our six female athletes are found positive in doping case. Some of the athletes are gold medal winners in the Asian games and common wealth games. This is really very shameful for the nation that their star runners are found positive in the dope test which is conducted by national anti doping agency, before take part in the Asian Athletics Championship Kobe Japan. All these athletes are trained in NIS Patiala.
Why Indian player cannot wins the medals in Olympics Games
Infrastructure is insufficient The stadium or playground in which athletes are doing practice are not up to the mark or not indoor stadium. Mostly in summer temperature raises around 40 to 46 deg in India. Athletes cannot do their practice in the summer due heat. While practice during the hot condition into the ground, body of the athletes dehydrated very quickly. So it's not advisable to the athletes to do practice in very hot conditions. To escape from the heat effects, athletes are doing practice only in the morning session. When there is raining season that time player cannot do their practice. The summer and raining season in India remains 4-5 months in a year. Without practice athletes or runners cannot win the medal for them and for their nation. The competition is very hard to win the medal from the Olympics game and from other international games. To win the medal from theses international games, sports of authority of India have to provide the all modern facilities to the athletes. So they can practice regularly without any interruption of nature.
Sports authority unable to find the young sport talents in the early stage of the athleteOur Sports authority is not able to find in the young talent in the early stage of the games of the young players. If Sports authority of India finds the talent in young stages of the athletes and provides them all the necessary supports and training to these athletes then these young athletes can be easily trained as per national and international standard. Its takes around three to five year's times to trained the young person as per international standard. Mostly these athletes are from the villages and from the remote places. These athletes cannot bear the burden of games by their own money. So these athletes need the support from the government to flourish their talent at international level. Right now only players are putting efforts to show their talents in front of sports authority to birth their place in national level games.
Medical facilities are not up to mark The medical facilities which are provided by the sports authority of India to the athletes are not up to the mark. When the players got injured they need the expert advice from the doctor to overcome from their injuries quickly. If the player remain injured for long time that long time injury will affect the practice of the athlete. Player cannot participate in practice session. There is recent example from the Netaji Subhas national institutes of sports Patiala have no doctor with the athletes when practice session was going there. This leads to cause the doping by the Indian star athletes, which are found positive by taking the food supplements which contains abuse substances. If the doctor was there at the camp, then this problem of doping may not occurred.
Lack of funds for sports training centers Government is not providing the sufficient funds to the national training institutes. Without funds these sports training institutes cannot buy modern equipments for their practice. Even sports authority is not providing good food supplements to the players. The food supplements which are providing by sports authority of India are not up to mark for the athlete. How these athletes performs in big events like Olympics games or international games without good supplements. Now the situation is like this athlete is personally buying the food supplements from outside the market.
Negligence of sport authority of India Sorts authority of India are taking care of the athletes properly. Athletes from the sports institutes, who are doing practice there are going outside from the premises of the institutes and buying food supplements and other required things from their personnel uses without informing the sports institute. This should not be allowing to the athletes to go outside from the premises of the institutes. These players are the future of India, any causalities can happen with these players when outside from institutes premises. The responsibility of the athletes is sole responsibility of the sports institutes.
