    Great to see new look team in Archery.
    Now merit and performance will talk based on trials
    Asian Games are also there  next year.
    All the best to young team
    Archery always had trials. And this time with Deepika has already won 2 World Cup stages and there was Olympics exhaustion and disappointment too. She and Atanu have anyway qualified for the World Cup finals. Right now World Cadet champion ,Komalika Bari is the only girl who might give competition to her in the upcoming year or two.

    People aren't talking swimming but I feel we have made inroads in swimming with two Swimmers qualifying via "A standard". Winning medals is essential if we are to do well in Olympics. The first step will be to win medals at Asian and Commonwealth Games. It will take time but I can see is doing well in 3-4 Olympics w.r.t Swimming.
    A friend's daughter is representing Telangana in the junior nationals. He compared the times from her metes to US national records. He found that Indian records were competitive with US kids (or close behind) until about 6th standard but the gap starts to increase thereafter and by high school Indians are far behind. He had thought she was doing well because she was improving her performance relative to her peers in India, but he found that in reality she was falling behind compared to her peers in the US. This is an issue of both lack of competition (more kids need to swim for higher competition), and lack of training facilities (so that we get the best out of the swimmers we have).
    Right now the raw talents of pool of athletes might not be there in the metros. It's there in the villages situated around the banks of rivers or a guy swimming in a pond. Give them access to it and then see the magic.

    Look at the website of swimming federation of India.

    We lack Foreign Coach and support staff.
    We also need to send coaches abroad for training.
    Look at Australia, USA, China, England and get some Foreign coaches. We are decades behind.
    Khajan Singh won Silver Medal in 1986 asian games in that 1982 Asiad Delhi push.  Then Virdhwal khade won a Bronze in 2010

    Excellent Sparta. This is so true. I can say this as I'm an avid swimmer. There are 100's of children who can swim in our mandal. Few starts swimming at the age of 5-6 years as well. In our school days, we used to have batch of 5 members who can swim across the river (almost 50m) at the age of 8-9 years, that too opposite direction to water flow. But we don't have proper channel and not aware of any zonal level competitions in our days.

    One of my junior from my village got to know about district level competition & he competed & won it. But he has to deal 19 -20 year old guys in State level competition when he is 16 year old and missed podium by 1 place. Top 2 or 3, he would have selected for national (inter-state) level competition.

    Shooting Contingent needs few Foreign coaches.
    When Rathore, Narang, Bindra, Vijay won Olympic medals - good Foreign coaches were brought to india.
    Now Federation is going abroad with Indian coaches, Ronak Pandit Samaresh Jung Rana etc.
    Juvenile excuses made us a laughing stock.
    Gun kharab ho gayi - Heena Sidhu is appearing on every TV channel.  What about the spare gun of same make ? Or Rana wrote something on t-shirt? 
    Chandela - Excuse ki dukaan !!!
    People returning from opening ceremony woke her up & due to noise  she lost.

    All this while making video shoot of various poses on yoga day or enjoying parties by local indians and not caring about bio bubble.
    In their charter plane -few private people like Olympic gold quest type also went.

    A cartel has developed which keep selecting themselves .
    Why was Chinki Yadav not selected?

    Hyped up rankings due to Delhi Cup where very few Foreign participants came.

    NRAI has admitted that they lost the control of contingent. They were not aware of outside people who went for camp abroad. Shooters were not updating them about progess.

    Similar thing did happen in 2016 Olympics also where India Drew a blank but there was no criticism as one time bad performance happens. That time also they collected a bunch of 90s and 2000s commonwealth fame shooters as personal coaches and mentors while quality was missing.

    Fire everyone 
    Hold Fresh Trials 
    Bring Foreign coach

  • Manika Batra has alleged that national coach Soumyadeep Roy asked her to throw a match during the Olympic qualifiers in March and that was the main reason she refused his help in the singles competition of the Tokyo Games.
