India at Olympics 2012- Day 5

Another day full of disappointments. I am surprised how worse we are performing day by day. My all interest in keeping updates of Indian players in Olympics is slowly fading away. At this point I am wondering if I should continue updating this piece on Olympic.

Now its difficult to call which among all is the biggest disappointment.

Lets take Hockey first. Seriously!! After all the big words making round for last couple of days, this is what we get to see. Even my father who is a big fan of Hockey and who has followed hockey for all his life gave up and did not watched yesterday's match complete.

With all the hype about players improved physique and stamina and strength sounds crap now. I was so looking forward to their performance when one of the players said they want to imitate Sourav Ganguly act when they win.I will be really surprised if that happens in coming days. I am disappointed.

- Hockey - India suffer second successive defeat

Second big disappointment comes from Tennis. L-V pair crashed out in the second round. It was a tough match and they failed to overcome the resistance from the French team. All the controversy related to pairing will subside now, knowing that none of our Tennis players is good enough to reach the podium. All that is remaining now is mixed doubles and I would dare to expect anything in that event.

Other disappointing results include:


While India's challenge in women's doubles  was already over, our team was trying to find a small chance to get back in the competition which unfortunately didn't happened.

 - India's badminton protest rejected at London Olympics

 - Rahi, Annu fail to make the final of 25m pistol event

 - Archery: World No.1 Deepika Kumari makes first round exit


 Swarn Singh was already out of medal contest in individual scull and repecage. He was contesting for the final ranking and the result again was not very cheerful as I understand it.

Only cheering news comes from Badminton court where both Saina and Kashyap made it to quarter finals. The upcoming match for the players are tough ones.

While Saina would need to be more cautious while playing against her opponent in QF, Kashyap will come face to face with 2nd ranked Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia. Its going to be very tough and Kashyap would need to put all his experience and efforts to get in to semi-finals

 - Parupalli Kashyap through to the quaterfinals of the men's singles Badminton event at London Olympics

- Saina Nehwal marches into quarterfinals

Hoping to be back here with day 6 updates and few disappointments and more success stories.
