India at Olympics 2012- Day 2


Second day of Olympics was less disappointing than first. Well, no medals yet but ratio of success: failure has reduced.

I am still not sure about sculls and repecage, but Swarn Singh is making India proud. He won his race standing first and has entered quarter finals. His performance was way better than all his competitors. I wish he keep continuing the good form and makes it to the next round.

As expected, one of the biggest medal hope Saina nehwal has started well. She beat her opposition player from Switzerland in just 21 minutes. Well its not group matches, but the quarter finals where Saina will actually find a tough competition. Hopefully she keep performing better and better with every game.

In the light weight 60kg boxing, Jai Bhagwan played fantastic and beat his opponent by a big margin of 18-8 to reserve a place in pre-quarter finals. Its still a long way to go, but we have one more player to support and look out for with a hope of medal.

All other results are disappointing. Except for shooters Heena Sidhu and Annu Raj (who are totally a new name for me) rest of the failures are really disappointing.

 Archery has been the biggest disappointment. Our archery team once again showed that they go weak under pressure situations.

Soumyajit lost his 2nd round in TT. Well I wasn't expecting a lot. He crossed first round, that itself is an achievement. His performance is surely better than many big known names like Jwala Gutta and Somdev, who failed to cross even the first round. No big expectations, but at least cross first round.
