    All the best to the Indian Delegation- A common thread for all about Tokyo Olympics

    The sports world is coming together in Tokyo. 32nd Olympics with a message of hope and brotherhood during this pandemic. No spectators. No cheers in the gallery, but the excitement is no less.

    Japan is in despair of not being able to show people the wonders that awaited. Opening ceremonies will be subject to strict restrictions. Team membership and the presence of celebrities will decrease. Sajan Prakash(an Indian swimmer) will be the Malayalee presence at the inauguration ceremony. India will be represented by 22 players and 6 officials.

    Manpreet Singh( Indian field hockey player) and Mary Kom (an Indian Olympic boxer) are the flag bearers for India. More than 11,000 athletes are vying for speed, distance, and height. 127 Indian athletes will compete in 18 events. For the next two weeks, the eyes of the world will be on Tokyo.

    Let us take this opportunity to wish all the Indian athletes who will participate in the Tokyo Olympic Games all the very best!

    Update- Please post all your observations, results, views and reviews about Olympics in this thread.

    The world is going to be treated with best sporting event on the cards and this time the great Olympics is held with no cheering or hooting and that may not down the sportive spirit of the performing sports persons and India also sent a determined squad of athletic performers who are eager to give their best and the country is more awaiting for gold medals in various discipline. Though these games are held with the fear of pandemic spread and other virus hope the Organizing country and the players would take ample precaution and give us the haul of great medals tally and my best wishes to each participant.

    Yes. The Olympics is the biggest event of sports and many countries will participate in this. This time Olympics are postponed and finally started without any spectators on the grounds. Pandemic has made its impact even on these games also.
    The Indian track record was not very good in Olympics. Our medal tally was always very less. We were winning in hockey but slowly we lost track. Let us hope this time our players participating in the games will make all-out efforts to come out with flying colours. I convey my best wished to all the players of our country who are representing the country in the Olympics and make us proud.

    always confident

    Hurrah! India bagged a silver medal on the first day with Mirabai Chanu clinching second place in the women's 49kg weightlifting snatch event. Karnam Malleswari, the winner of India's first weightlifting Olympic medal with a bronze in the 2000 Sydney Olympics, had predicted that Chanu would win a medal in this sport. So India right away has a rank in the medals tally at #4. Way to go Chanu!

    In other events, we have Saurabh Chaudhary bagging a spot in the final of the 10m air pistol competition, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty upsetting the Chinese No.3 team in badminton, Sumit Nagal moving to the second round in tennis, Manika Batra entering the second round in table tennis, and the Indian men's hockey team somehow managed to win over New Zealand.

    There seems to be more enthusiasm and playing with determination as this time our strong delegation is bound to get good haul of medals and earnestly started with silver.

    Mirabai Chanu has given India the first medal in this Olympics in Weightlifting. She is the second weightlifter after Karnam Malleshwari to get an Olympic medal. In the 2016 Olympics, Chanu failed to have a single legitimate lift. But, this time, she has managed to bring honour for the country. She toiled a lot during the intervening years. Corona-ravaged Manipur would be very happy by the success of the girl of the state.

    We expect India's second medal from Saurabh Chaudhary (Shooting-air rifles).

    Indian male hockey team also begins its campaign successfully.

  • #738312
    Congratulations to Mirabai Chanu, the winner of a silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics. Chanu is a native of Manipur. Chanu had won a silver medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. In 2018, the country honored Chanu, by giving Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award for her contribution to sports. The year 2017 was one of Chanu's greatest achievements. In 2017 Chanu made history by winning a gold medal at the world weightlifting championships.

  • #738337
    Congratulations to the winner of silver medal in weight lifting Mirabai Chanu. It is great starting for India in Olympics. Hope India will win more medals that it participate in other events also.

  • #739336
    Congratulations to Mirabai Chanu.. She made us proud. Saurabh Chaudhary did well and bagged a spot in the final of the 10m air pistol competition. But I understand that he lost the final. Anyhow, it is a good start for India and let is wait for more medals in the coming events. India won the hockey match today in the initial match New Zealand.
    always confident

  • #739337
    Unfortunately, Saurabh Chaudhary finished 7th in the final, but nevertheless, it was an achievement for him to reach the final, so full credit to him. With a superb medal-winning spree over the past years, including gold medals in the Asian Games and the ISSF World Cup, he has huge potential. It is hoped that he does bring home a medal in the mixed team event with Manu Bhaker. The 19-year olds had earlier teamed up in the 2019 World Cup and won top honours. They are also considered to be the favourites at this year's Olympic event.

    This is a good start that Mirabai Chanu got a silver medal and I wish that more will be on the anvil as the Olympic progress. This time we are hoping a lot from the Indian participants who have reached in the Olympics.

  • #739362
    Indian professional badminton player PV Sindhu to a successful start. In the first round, Sindhu defeated Israeli Ksenia Polikarpova in straight sets. Score: 21-7, 21-10. PV Sindhu is also a silver medalist at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

    We can expect a gold medal from Sindhu in this Olympics.

  • #739376
    Good to know that Sindhu qualified for the next round. Mary Kom, too, won her first round and Manika Batra made a marvellous recovery after losing the first two games to defeat her first-round opponent from Ukraine. It is hoped that our star table tennis player gets a podium finish. There were many disappointments in other sports, though, with Sania Mirza and Ankita Raina losing their first-round match, and at the shooting range both men and women failing to progress.

    One of the superb achievements in the pool was 18-year old Ahmed Hafnaoui of Tunisia bagging the gold medal. Imagine being the slowest in the qualifying round and slicing through the water in the final to beat top Australian contenders. Wow! Our swimmers, too, have astonished everyone by qualifying. There are no less than three competing, namely, Sajan Prakash (200m butterfly), Srihari Nataraj (100m backstroke), and Maana Patel (100m backstroke). Let's cheer for them!

  • #739398
    So far good going for the Indian athletes in this Olympic. We can hope some gold medals in this scenario. I am pinning my hopes on Sindhu for the first gold.
    Knowledge is power.

  • #739404
    It seems Manu Bhaker lost valuable time due to the breaking of the pistol's lever, which is very rare, and though she did make a superb effort, just missed out on qualifying for the final round, finishing 12th in the qualification round.

    Srihari and Maana did not qualify through their respective Heats and the men's hockey team put up a poor defence against the strong Australian team, scoring just a single goal against their seven. In the boxing ring, Manish Kaushik lost his first round, while table tennis player G Sathiyan shockingly lost to a lower-ranked opponent. Equally disappointing was the loss of Deepika Kumari & Pravin Jadhav in the quarterfinals of the archery competition's mixed team event.

    Let's continue to support Team India and hope for some good news tomorrow.

    It was interesting that for the first time India was participating in fencing and Bhavani Devi winning the first round was highly commendable. Though she lost in the second round to a top opponent, there is potential in her. While our shooters and archers again failed to make a mark, and Sutirtha Mukherjee. and Manika Batra lost, Sharath Kamal moved to the next round in table tennis. Sumit Nagal also lost his second round in tennis. I am looking forward to a good show by our sailing team. Other Indians in the fray are our boxers and the women's hockey team.

    In Rowing, Indian pair has done great. The Lightweight Men's Double Sculls pair of Arjun Lal Jat and Arvind Singh has created history by outperforming expectations and reaching the semifinals after finishing third behind the winner, Poland, and the runners-up, Spain.

  • #739460
    Doping test to Chinese athlete Shihui Hu.
    Mirabai Chanu's silver medal is likely to become a gold medal. Chanu will win gold if China's world number one Shihui Hu fails a doping test. Shihui Hu won the gold by lifting a total of 210 kg.

  • #739461
    There is a chance for Mirabai Chanu to get Gold medal in Olympics as the present China Gold medal winner was suspected for doping. She was undergoing doping the test.

  • #739463
    We must be very careful about the Chinese. They may throw tantrums. We can't believe them.

    Hopefully Mirabai Chanu will get the Gold.

  • #739491
    India won 3-0 in Men's Hockey Olympic tournament with Spain after got defeated by Australia in the initial match. It is good news for India in Hockey event.The team played with great determination and held their nerves till the last minute. Congratulations Indian team for their good performance.

  • #739497
    This victory in hokey will increases the confidence of India, which lost miserably to Australia in the last match. India beat Spain 3–0. Rupinder Singh and Simranjit Singh scored in the first quarter to give India the lead. India's third goal came on a penalty stroke. Despite Spain's excellent attack, the brilliant saves of Malayalee goalkeeper PR Sreejesh helped India. India's next rivals are Argentina and Japan.

  • #739500
    Mirabai Chanu , the 1st medal winner in the Tokyo Olympics 2021 make the Indian nation proud. We are expecting more medal in this year than ever before. All the participant are brilliants in our eyes , we want there every success.
    Believe in the existence of God the super power.

  • #739501
    Happy to know India won their game against Spain. Let us hope they make it to the finals. It is disappointing not to have the once-formidable Pakistan team playing. This is the second time that they did not qualify for the Olympics, which is a pity as at one time they always created excitement on the turf with their fast play against any opponent.

    India's women's hockey team is the highest-ranking Asian team and although they have lost their opening games, it is hoped they do exceptionally well and win their games against Great Britain, South Africa, and Ireland. These teams may be less formidable opponents, but they should not take it for granted that it will be easy.

    In other events, table tennis and shooting were no-shows. Lovlina Borgohain meets a German opponent today, while KC Ganapathy and Varun Thakkar are out on the waters in the sailing competition.

    When you make a commitment, you create hope. When you keep a commitment you create trust! ~ John C. Maxwell

  • #739502
    Lovlina Borgohain secured the quarterfinals in boxing by defeating Nadine Apetz of Germany. The score is 3-2. Lovlina is the first woman athlete to compete in the Olympics from Assam.

  • #739548
    While PV Sindhu remained on course, the women's hockey team is floundering, having lost to Britain and having to rely on other results to be able to go forward. It is really sad to see them just not getting their game together. The lightweight double sculls team unfortunately did not make it to the final round.

    It was upsetting for many gymnast fans to see Simone Biles withdrawing from the women's final due to some mental health issues, but her decision should be respected.

    When you make a commitment, you create hope. When you keep a commitment you create trust! ~ John C. Maxwell

  • #739570
    Pooja Rani in boxing and Deepika Kumari in archery have moved ahead. Although Arjun Lal and Arvind Singh finished in the last place in the Lightweight Double Sculls, to reach the semi-final of the Olympic Games is a truly commendable effort. Well done! They will now participate in what is known as Final B for ranking in the event.

    P.V. Sindhu again performed well and enters into quarterfinals. The men's hockey team also showed hope of a medal for the nation by making their way to the quarter-finals, defeating Argentina. Atanu Das also entered the pre-quarterfinals. Indian women boxers are performing well in their events, now hoping for the best results from today's match of Mary Kom.

  • #739596
    India's badminton star P.V.Sindhu has entered the quarterfinals in the women's singles event. She defeated Mia Blichfeldt of Denmark 2-0 in the Round of 16.
    In archery, Atanu Das won 6-5 against Oh Jin Hyek of South Korea in a thriller of the men's events.
    In hockey, Indians defeated Argentina by 3-1 and entered the quarterfinals in men's hockey.
    Satish Kumar won his bout against Ricardo Brown of Jamaica 4:1 in the Round of 16 of men's Super Heavy category in boxing. The legendary Mary Kom continues her eyes on gold.
    Hope is alive to win some more medals.

  • #739597
    That's great news about badminton, archery, and hockey! In the ring, too, there's good news, with Satish Kumar progressing to the quarter finals. We are also in the golf events today, with not just Anirban Lahiri and Udayan Mane teeing off on the greens, but Diksha Dagar coming in due to getting a late entry and so will be in the women's event along with Aditi Ashok. At the shooting range, Manu Bhaker was #5 and Rahi Sarnobat at #18 in the 25m women's pistol qualification round.

    Mary Kom could not succeed in boxing.
    Mary Kom loses to Lorena Valencia of Colombia in the 51kg flyweight.

    India's Satish Kumar in quarterfinals at Tokyo Olympics boxing. In the men's 91+ kg heavyweight event, Satish Kumar entered the quarterfinals by defeating Jamaica's Ricardo Brown 4-1.

  • #739645
    Expecting P. V. Sindhu to win. It's disappointing to learn that Mary Kom has lost. Let's wish that no more disappointment takes place in the Indian camp.

  • #739659
    Indian women's boxer Lovlina Borgohain reached the semifinals. Having reached the semi-finals, the bronze medal is guaranteed. Lovlina Borgohain defeated Chinese Taipei's Nian Chin Chen 4-1 in the quarterfinals. Lovlina Borgohain is India's hopeful after Mary Kom in boxing at the Tokyo Olympics.

  • #739737
    What an exciting day for Team India! Kamalpreet Kaur entered the finals of the Discus throw event and the women's hockey team went all out to steal a closely fought game against South Africa with a 4-3 win with a hat-trick from my namesake (smiling). However, their progress to the quarter-finals is hanging by a thread on the outcome of an evening game. Only if Ireland draws or loses to Great Britain in the last Pool A game, India will march ahead.

    In other track & field events, India's mixed relay team finished last in the heat but did manage a season-best time, while MP Jabir finished last in his heat in the 400m hurdles. Yesterday, Dutee Chand did not progress in the 100m, as also Avinash Sable in the steeplechase, though he bettered the national record. He definitely should be rewarded for his effort as his timing was better than the finishers in another heat.

    The shooting venue continued to bring disappointments to the much-touted shooting teams with the ladies failing the women's final of the 3P event (kneeling, prone, and standing). The only ones left to compete in the shooting are Sanjeev Rajput and Aishwary Tomar in the men's 50m 3P qualification round that will take place tomorrow.

    Later today we look forward to Lovlina in the ring and PV Sindhu on the court, two of our best medal prospects.

    Yippee! PV Sindhu defeated her Chinese opponent He Bing Jiao, winning in straight games 21-13, 21-15. So that's another bronze medal for India. Looking forward to a win from the men's hockey team as well, with a 2-0 lead against Great Britain.

    India loses to Belgium in the Olympic men's hockey semis. The medal hope is not over yet. India can still compete for the bronze medal. We can definitely hope to win a bronze medal for the country.

    Tons of excitement today! Wrestler Ravi Kumar at one stage was just having two points as against nine of his opponent but returned to make a spectacular finish with a fall and enters the final of the men's Freestyle 57kg event. He is the second Indian to enter the wrestling final in an Olympic event (the previous Indian to do so was Sushil Kumar). Go for Gold Ravi Kumar! Deepak Punia is in the other event's semi-final, namely, the men's Freestyle 86kg, and surely Ravi Kumar's win will boost his confidence even more. Let's hope he also gets into the final.

    Then there was Neeraj Chopra, instantly qualifying for the men's Javelin Final with a throw of 86.65m, having topped his group. Another medal in the reckoning, we hope. Aditi Ashok is in the joint second spot in the golf event.

    In other events, Anshu Malik lost the women's wrestling Freestyle 57kg round of 16, and Lovlina Borgohain had to settle for the bronze, losing her boxing bout in the women's Welterweight semi-final. The India women's hockey team are competing now against Argentina - let's cheer for them!

    It was quite heartbreaking to see the spirited women's hockey team lose to Argentina 1-2. They will now face Great Britain for the bronze medal on 6th August.

    Tomorrow the men's hockey team meets Germany. Also in the fray at the Olympics is Vinesh Phogat, who meets Sofia Mattson of Sweden on the wrestling mat in the 53kg category, and Ravi Kumar Dahiya will meet Zavur Uguev of Russia in the final of his category. Neeraj Chopra will be throwing the javelin tomorrow evening and it was very interesting to know that the second person to qualify was Pakistan's Arshad Nadeem who, like Neeraj, topped his group in the qualification event. Hope both of them finish on the podium.

    When you make a commitment, you create hope. When you keep a commitment you create trust! ~ John C. Maxwell

  • #740982
    It's confirmed that Ravi Dahiya will win a medal, but the final match would decide the colour. Let's hope for the best. Wishing both the hockey teams to win their last match and win the Bronze medal respectively. Hope they will succeed. All the best to the rest of the athletes for their upcoming events.

    India loses the Olympic women's hockey bronze medal. They lost to Britain by four goals to three. India's performance in the bronze medal was excellent. This was the first medal fight in hockey of Indian women.

    A golden salute to the Indian women even though there is no bronze medal in hockey.

  • #741054
    Indian Women hockey deserve appreciation for their fight in the match with Britain. They played well but unfortunately. Congratulations to Ravi Dahiya for his silver medal in wrestling.

    Applause and cheers for the men's and women's hockey teams, both. No matter that one team bagged an Olympic medal and the other did not. Superb performances on the turf were what mattered, and they delivered it to the last second. We just missed out on that goal in the last few minutes. Looking forward to equally gritty performances in Paris three years from now.

    Congratulations to Ravi Kumar Dahiya for his silver medal. On the greens is Aditi Ashok, on course to winning a medal, and Bajrang Punia is into the semifinals of his wrestling event. Then there is Neeraj Chopra...a lot of hope today at the Olympics for India.

    Marry Kom has returned empty-handed. She was expected to come back with gold because she has won gold medals in several international bouts.
    She has raised some questions about her defeat. After losing the first round she won the second and third rounds, she also alleged to be harassed and obfuscated before coming to the ring.
    She apologised to all countrymen for not coming with medals as everybody was expecting to her for winning a medal for her country.

  • #741120
    Aditi Ashok, who thrilled India with her unexpected medal hopes in Olympic golf, was disappointed. Aditi, who was relegated to fourth place in the final round, lost the medal. After completing the first three rounds of the women's individual stroke play, second-placed Aditi fell behind in the fourth round. The world number one player Nellie Corda of America won the gold medal.

  • #741123
    Yes, unfortunate that Aditi Ashok missed out on a medal. The best news is that India closed on a high, with a gold medal for Neeraj Chopra and a bronze for Bajrang Punia, both winning in spectacular style, which means a total of seven medals. Three cheers!

    We need to cheer our contingent at the 2021 Paralympic Games also, which begins on 24th August. They are participating in badminton table tennis, powerlifting, wrestling, athletics, tennis, etc and deserve every bit of our moral support, too. So we'll have a separate thread just for them later.

    Every Indian must be happy today. We have got one Gold Medal today that adorns all the achievements in the ongoing Olympics. Although the Indian women's hockey team was unfortunate, still it has given a reason for the Indians to be proud of. More power to the Indian sports fraternity!

  • #741153
    Is the javelin throw regarded as a sport? What role does it play in Olympic events? Olympic officials should reconsider classifying it as a sport. My other question is that 127 athletes from India compete daily, and often read about 4-5 athletes to compete in sports every day, yet we only received 7 medals, four of those are bronze medals, 2 silver medals, one and gold medal, ranking us 47th out of 85 countries who received medals(at present). Often we never heard some country names they are also top in the medal tally than India. What is the cost that we put on each head of these athletes and to pay for foreign coaches to participate in the Olympics?

  • #741176
    Bhushan, yes, the javelin throw is a sport and is an athletic event that has been part of the Olympics since eons, more precisely, since 1908. As for the costs of hiring expert coaches, Indian or foreign, that is exactly what our sportspersons do need. Investing in their potential is worth the effort when they achieve the qualification mark itself to make them eligible to participate in the Olympics. Take pride in them.

    Congrats to Neeraj chopra for winning gold medal. After long time India got gold medal in Olympic Games. We all Indian must be happy on this great achievement. We are proud of you.

  • #741185
    #741176 Vandana, This sport seems to have no emotional connection; all you have to do is throw it. This tool (Javelin) was used by old stone people to kill animals and even humans. It is a wild sport. I humbly request that this sport be removed from the future Olympics because it has no significance for proving the talent. My next question is that the country's economy is in shambles, and people have died of starvation in this nation given the nation providing several subsidies to the destitute and numerous charities and governmental organizations assisting the impoverished in feeding the people. We are squandering expense monitoring on unworthy people, even though we are paying huge salaries to international coaches and athletes who have only earned 7 medals. from the last 45 Olympics India has won only below 50 medals for the country so it is useless to spend on them...In 1956, South Carolina banned javelin from high school competition because it was “too dangerous for spectators," Throwing the javelin, chucking an eight-foot long pointed spear, which is, by the way, an Olympic sporting event, has been banned as a high school sport in many parts of the country for decades.

  • #741187
    @741185, all these sports items are/have been there even from school and college level competitions .
    By your logic we cannot have most items and events now seen in sports meets. I feel these kind of sports actually channelize the extra energy to positive directions and keep the negative under control.

    By going with your logic, we need not have any development and only a little farming is needed to satisfy our basic hunger. We should understand what is economy. It comprises everything and every sector. Every source and every spending. There is a good amount of sports economy also, which also gives people their livelihood.
    We cannot wait for perfection and then do something new.

    It is as futile as standing at the shore waiting for the waves to subside to enter into the water.
