  1. possibly arokia rajeev made 45.37 at the asian close to anas ..... should be either decent or long at least , also definately seema antil with a decent chance she did a 62 last year and kamalpreet was close so she also should in with a decent chance ,,,, nayana james and neena are long shots in womens long they did a 6.51 last year , also kushbir and saumya in womens 20km should be in with a decent chance , sandeep in 50 km race walk , gopi in marathon should have decent chances in marathon they have always been liberal in the qualifying standards , also suriya in womens 10000 and Anu in 400mh can be long shots ................ this will bring us to 40 if all qualify ........ last time 34 .... hope we can better this ...... our side is better I feel than last time......................... hope we can have more finalists
  2. I am praying ritu comes back ..... then our womens wrestling team would be really strong
  3. UWW has published their latest world ranking I have put the ranking next to the list I put last week May world ranking none 57 ravi ( u23 silver , 5th at the asian championships )/ rahul aware ( commonwealth G, asian championship - B in 61 ) World rank 1 65 bajrang ( S - world championship medallist , asian games champion, asian championship G ) world rank 16 74 amit dhankar ( S - asianchampionship ) / sushil Kumar ( commonwealth 2018 G ) world rank 19 86 deepak punia ( Silver - world juniors , asian championship B ) 97 Satyawrat ( B - asian championship ) world rank 7 125 ( sumit ( B - asian championship , 5th - world 2018 ) Women ritu 10 50 Vinesh ( asian games G, asian championship B in 53 ) vinesh 6 53 Babita ? ???????( Commonwelath S ) world rank 6 57 pooja ( world B ) world rank 16 62 Sakshi ( asian championship - B ) navjot 12 , divya 20 68 Divya ( asian games - B, asian championship B ) 76 Krishna Bishnoi ?????

  4. Good list - do update with arpinder for the middle category ....
  5. If vinesh stays at 53 which i also feel is likely then the 50 kg seems to be wide open ...... ritu phogat would have been the best but she has announced she has quit wrestling ..... i am not sure that we have any good 50kg wrestler in women ..... any body has any suggestions ? - hate to leave it blank ... yes ravi would be my choice but in the asian champs he wrestled at a higher weight category so am not sure ........ depak punia in the free and sunil in the greco are really good ..... age 18 and 19 respectively ....so may find it tough due age and inexperience.............. i watched the final bout of sunil with the iranian he was so very good ..... could have won but for small technical issues ......... would love to see sajjan also come up ..... very unfortunely he is in the same weight as gurjeet which is a pity as gurjeet was possibly our best in greco..... sandeep has been bad for the last couple of so i think ravi is our best bet ...... Thanks will post soon on the shooting also
  6. Our best chances are in Wrestling , shooting and boxing for 2020 ( we have improved compared to Rio ) ..... with possible medals in Badminton and weightlifting ( we are at the same level as last time ) .......... we have long shots in athletics ( weare better off than last time ) , hockey ( better off than last time ) and archery( a little worse off than last time ) .......................... but tennis we have really no hopes ( we are much worse off than Rio ) ........ My take on wrestling wrestling I hope we can qualify at least 4 in women and 4 in free style and 2 in greco ( based on the asian champ results )- this is compared to 6 last time ( we had 2 pluses due to doping disqualifications and then we lost 1 due to doping and ended up with 7 ) ........so 10 would be great ......... I feel if we qualify 10 we can get 1-3 medals this time . I have marked what I believe is our best chances in yellow to qualify this time - I am marking only their last 2 years victories here ....... Freestyle 57 ravi ( u23 world silver , 5th at the asian championships )/ rahul aware ( commonwealth G, asian championship - B in 61 ) 65 bajrang ( S - world championship medallist , asian games champion, asian championship G ) 74 amit dhankar ( S - asianchampionship ) / sushil Kumar ( commonwealth 2018 G ) 86 deepak punia ( Silver - world juniors , asian championship B ) 97 Satyawrat ( B - asian championship ) 125 sumit ( B - asian championship , 5th - world 2018 ) Women 50 Vinesh ( asian games G, asian championship B in 53 ) 53 Babita ? ???????( Commonwealth S ) 57 pooja ( world B ) 62 Sakshi ( asian championship - B ) 68 Divya ( asian games - B, asian championship B ) 76 Krishna Bishnoi ????? ( commonwealth B ) Greco 60 Gyanender ( asian championshp B ) 67 77 Gurpreet ( Silver - asian championship S, 5th - Asian Games ) / Sajjan Kumar ( S - World Juniors , 5th - U23 ) ) 87 Sunil (Silver - asian championship S ) 97 harpreet ( asian games 5th ) 130 aryan panwar ????? ( asian junior bronze 2018 ) will give my take on qualification chances in shooting next if you found this list useful
  7. thanks Bro .... great feedback ... our best chances sunil in 87 Kgs and Gurpreet in 77 ( with gyanender in 60 and harpreet in 97 as long shots ) ....in fact we have another wrestler Sajjan in 77 who is also great ( twice junior world medallist - silver in 2018 ) who I really believe has it to be the best Indian Greco wrestler since pappu yadav ... he is still 19 only ( came a close 5th in the under 23 worlds in 2019 ) Incidently Pappu yadav and kartar singh may be the last few greco roman wrestlers of India who defeated Iranian wrestlers ( Kartar way back in 1983 ( in the final of 100 Kg asian championship ) and early 1990s pappu yadav did win a couple of gold medals at the asian level. That was 40 or so years back
  8. prannoy loses ....... I am a bit frustrated with badminton currently ....none of the men seem to improving I was hoping that one of them would also move into the top 10 along with Srikanth and create the dynamics like the women but unfortunately prannoy , sai or sameer seem to be able to move to the next level
  9. was very suprised that india got 4 medals in greco ......we were pathetic only won one match in 2018 worlds and were nowhere in asian games ....... what was the reason this time ? .......... 3 ( 2 silvers and a bronze ) out of 4 were in olympic weights so that was very encouraging also ....... in fact we had done suprisingly well in the juniors in 2018 also ...... so something is changing though none of them have graduated to the seniors .... though sajjan came close to a medal in the u23 worlds
  10. well for the last 5 asian wrestling events( between 2014-2018 ) we have got between 5-10 medals at the asian wrestling event ........ in 2018 we got just 8 medals This time we got 16 ....... the best we have ever done ...... well I cannot comment for you but for me that is a great achievement ...... Greco this is the best we have ever done by far in Asia in Greco - last year we got just 2 medals ..... this year we got 4 medals (and 3 silvers ) so again this is a good achievement ...I think the team did really well ...I would like to see Sajjan come into the squad but he is in 77 kgs so Gurjeet did very well ....... also possibly vijay from the juniors .............. are only real weakness then will be in the super heavy freestyle was brilliant 1G, 3S and 4B..I am glad we have some really good new names .... deepak punia has come up from the juniors and vicky is also very young..... both did brilliantly for their first championship ..... also satyawrats return after 4 years is again great news ....... with Bajrang and rahul and sumit , I feel we have a strong team ....... I think sandeep tomar was the only person who may have to fight to get into this high profile team and I do not know what sushil will do ? ........but freestyle team looks good for the world champs and I feel they may do well ......... possibly with only these two changes ............... Women was the only area I felt a little disappointed .......last year we had 1G , 1S and 2B .....from there to get 4B was disappointing ..... to be fair vinesh and Divya were returning from injuring and ritu leaving wrestling so the team was a bit unstable but still I expected better from Navjot , Pooja and possibly some new names in the higher wieght categories ,,,,,, also i agree vinesh should be in 50 kgs and not 53
  11. overall in the major events this week we seem to have done well - this is a good start to the olympic qualification season ISSF world cup 3-1-0 and leading the pack at least for this event Asian wrestling championship 1-6-9 and I think we did very well especially in greco and freestyle ...... we were in the top bracket at least in the overall medal tally Asian Boxing 2-4-7 and especially well across the board ...... This despite Vikas and Mary kom not being there ........ we lead on total medals especially nice to see Shiva back , kavinder fought brilliantly . I think fine tuning
