With the Olympics upon us and all the worlds eyes on London the AIG have, like most sports fans, settled in when they can to get their dose of the four-yearly event. The first thing you notice about the Olympic coverage in India is how broad and diverse it is. If you thought that week one of the Olympics was “the swimming week” I can share with you the truth that it doesn’t have to be.
In India the big name Olympic hopefuls are in shooting, boxing, wrestling and badminton. Watch out for Abinhav Bindra and Gagan Narang in the 10m air rifle and the indomitable Rondan Singh Sodhi in the double trap. In boxing the story of Mary Kom is intriguing, a five-time world champion Mary would have surely been an Olympic medalist in the past if only her sport were included in the games. Now finally with the chance, will age deny her? Keep an eye on the Women’s flyweight on August 5th to find out.
