Advani played so well till semi final and one moment he came close to tie with ding...somehow his long pots didnt work well but his safety play is the best in modern snooker game ...even ding acknowledged that

The real positive outcome of the Rio games seems to be the response of the authorities..

There seems to be a genuine level of thpugh being put into Indian sports..

Despite a few hiccups, federations are starting to end their disdainful attitude....government is talking about a long term plan unlike in rhe past whr we saw authorities talk abt olympic sports just 3 to 4 month before the games...

Boxing federation mess seems to be closing on ro a solution...

Ppl in power are talking abt improving accountability in the federations...

A few lesser medals on an edition of the games is'nt the end of the road if the people involved learn from it and do what is needed...

I believe we are heading in the right direction...

Good to see your optimism but the way I see it it is all talk and no substance. Failure never wakes up the authorities in India, its only success which makes them come running for their photo-ops and reflected glory...

 

Also, all olympic plans are always "long term". Modi declared forming a task force for next 3 olympics - what happens if he loses elections?? Do you think that task force will remain unaffected ??? Soon, authorities will start saying that 2020 is too close and we need to focus on 2024 - then after 2020, they'll either be out of power or start saying we need to focus on 2028 !!! Even NRAI's "post-mortem" seems aimed at increasing their own influence (no personal coaches, no individual separate foreign training) as opposed to actually making improvements...

 

Earlier, everyone used to say we need world class foreign coaches. So authorities got the cheapest, most dope-tainted coaches available and observers became happy as they had white skin. Now, with Sindhu, Sakshi and Dipa all having Indian coaches, the foreigners will be shown the door and we'll return to the old outdated Indian coaching manuals...
