    Top 10 boats participate in medal and points earned are double the rank. For example a sailor finishing in 3rd earns 6 points. The sailor with least accumulated points wins

    A maximum of two players per NOC can qualify overall, so countries who already qualified 1 player can only qualify 1 more player

    Hi everyone, I have opened an Youtube channel named 'India in Olympics' - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp29tj5oECE0IMPVUZ3dulA discussing India's participation in 2020 Olympics. 
    Also opened an Instagram page focusing on non-cricket Indian athletes - https://www.instagram.com/siddhartha_sportsfan/
    Th aim of them is to create awareness of our athletes to the masses. Please do check it out and mention how to make it better

    Do you think Satwik-Shetty are genuine medal contenders. 
    Indonesia will finish 1-2 in this event. Bronze could go to China or Japan

    If the discussion is about India having 'talent' but not able to perform because of improper nutrition we can consider India's urban population which itself is comparable to small countries - Delhi (18.6 mil), Mumbai (22 mil), Bangalore (12.4 mil), Kolkata (4.6 mil), Chennai (4.9 mil). The urban population just doesn't play cricket but football, badminton, table tennis, basketball are quite popular too. Restaurants and pubs also air non-cricket matches but of course nothing can be compared to cricket games.
    Recently there was a tournament of U-14 teams from English Premier League (including teams from Manchester United and Chelsea) and Indian Super League in Mumbai, where the Indian teams did well.

    Inter district and state competitions of various sports are held regularly and is quite competitive

    The issue is not dearth of talent but absence of grassroot level coaching and youngsters not choosing sports as a viable career option except for cricket.
    But this might change with the introduction of Khelo India (multiple sports) and Baby Leagues (football) to identify and groom young talent, and hopefully they take up the sport professionally. Many of our young shooters like Saurabh Chaudhary, Manu Bhaker are products of Khelo India

    The Indian men's Archery team reaching the final was a miracle and totally unexpected. Don't think it will be repeated in Olympics. My predictions for this event are 1. South Korea 2. Chinese Taipei 3. China

    Even if the numbers are under-reported its still quite low given the population size and urban population density. Here, the pandemic is still at an early stage and we intend to keep the curve flat. Its not feasible to test everyone so only those who arrived from abroad or show symptoms are tested. We are trying to beat the pandemic by lockdown and most institutions like schools, colleges, banks and offices are closed. Our PM requested everyone to follow a virtual curfew on Sunday.
    The roads of Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India and has the worst traffic in the world, has sparse traffic nowadays and its surreal to see so few cars on the road

    Siddhartha Talukdar got a reaction from RiSeGwangFan in Your Own Multi-Sport Event   
    I would propose a multi-sport of sports which are indigenous and popular to a country or region and have potential to have mass popularity like Kabaddi from Indian subcontinent, Australian rules football, hurling, sepaktakraw etc.
    Since most of them are team sports, the quotas can be handed as follows - four best teams and one each from Asia/Oceania, Africa, Europe and Americas; so each sport shall feature 8 NOCs.
    NOCs may not be ranked by medal tally but by cumulative points earned in sport. The points earned shall be earned by combination of final standing and a weightage factor decided by whether the sport is indigenous in that region. For example, in hurling Ireland shall have a lower weightage factor then, lets say Kenya.
     
    Probable List of sports
    American football
    Basque pelota
    Hurling
    Kabaddi
    Sepaktakraw
    Wushu
    Sambo
    Netball
    Lawn bowls
    Australian rules football
