    This is too good not to pass on.
     
    If they are going to use video game music the athletes ought to have to jump between platforms and occasionally grab a spinning diamond as they move along.

    *Indian  at the Tokyo Olympics ……..6 days to Olympics ……….post 5 of 10 by nitin sanker*
     
    Reaching halfway point here , these post  are taking time ( a couple of hrs of research )  do let me know if you have them useful and share them in other groups 
    We have looked at 3 out of the 8 medal possible sports of India  and Today we look at *Athletics* 
     
    This is the blue riband sport in the Olympics which gets the maximum viewership, A sport with a huge number of 48 events (  this divided into track , field and road events ) , it has made famous names like Jesse owens , Usain bolt , Carl Lewis, Abebe Bikila  and so many great names
    India has participated in athletics in 1900 with 2 silvers on the name of Norman Prichard , since then we have not won a single medal though came agonizingly close with *Milkha Singh , PT Usha* who  both finished 4th and the *Gurbachan Singh Randhawa and Anju George* who finished 5th  . Let us look at our chances in athletics this time . we have a squad of 26 participating in 14  events ( out of 48 ) .  Lets look at the medal prospects . we have only two 
     
    *Javelin* - Neeraj Chopra is the best athlete we have had since Anju George , In 2016 he won the  world under 20 world championship gold medal , he has been a commonwealth and Asian Gold medal and comes into the Olympics  as 4th best on 2021 leading scores . his is an event where gold will almost undoubtedly go to Vetter of Germany who is well above the rest and there are many who have a personal best higher than Neeraj , but javelin is a sport where athletes rarely reach their personal best at the Olympics ,  Neeraj both has the big game temperament  and has been consistent this year , if he throws  close to 90 he will probably get a medal  ( personal best of 88.07  which he has done in 2021) . So a *Likely* 
     
    *womens discus* - Kamalpreet Kaur , this lady has been in great form breaking the NR fairly often , she comes in ranked 6th in 2021 , but we have to see whether she can replicate that in a big event , as she has shot up the ranks fairly fast . Well not likely but a *possible*
     
    While we have only two prospects let us look at other who can reach the finals and that itself is a good achievement , every  games we have had the rare privilege to see an Indian name in the atheletics in a final. This happens  usually in just 1-2 events . This time besides the above two . tejinder toor in mens shotput , racewalkers  in 20KM in both men and women ( there is no finals here so I would look for a  10th place or above finish ) , Annu Rani in womens javelin , the mens 4*400 and the mixed 4*400 may give us a position in the finals . *If we get more than 3 finalists* ( we had a max of 3 at the london olympics )that by itself would be a sign of improvement ( I feel that is almost sure , I am hoping for around 5 finalists). *Medal prediction 0-1 at tokyo*

    My prediction based on current world ranking status 
     
    Most likely to medal at least 9 medals from this group  ( based on world rankings ) at least 50% probability  so 9 medals from this 
     
      sport event  name  world ranking  1 shooting  10m pistol pair  india1 1 2 shooting 50m3positions  aishwarya  singh tomar 1 3 shooting  10m pistol  yeshashwani 1 4 shooting  25m pistol  rahi sarnobhat 1 5 Boxing  52 kg Amit  1 6 wrestling  53kg kg Free Vinesh 1 7 archery  recurve women deepika kumari 1 8 shooting  10m pistol saurabh chaudhary 2 9 shooting  10m pistol  manu 2 10 shooting  25m pistol  manu bhaker 2 11 wrestling  65 kg Free  Bajrang 2 12 shooting  10m rifle pair  india1 3 13 shooting  10m pistol abhishek verma  3 14 Boxing  51 kg Mary Kom 3 15 Boxing  69 kg Lovlina 3 16 wrestling  57 kg free Ravi 3 17 wrestling  57 kg free anshu 3 18 weightlifting  womens 49 kg  mirabai chanu 4  
    and then from this group  at least 25% probability . so possibly 4 medals

    in my opinion......   The excuse given by the CWG is ridiculous .......
     
     
    They could not hold a shooting championship in South England as they did not have facilities ....Sounds ridculous ... while they could do it manchester , glasgow , edinborough , london, bisley  etc etc  ....... the biusley venue is just an hour and a half away ..... ( closer than the cycling venue ) 
     
     
    This is clearly aimed at an unsportsmanlike thwarting of sports they do badly at ( and India does wellat ) .........
     
    Personally I think that the Birmingham team are a pack of cheaters ....... and should be called out for what they are ....... I am glad Indians called them out for this .......

    The thing is, shooting has been on the Commonwealth Games program longer than a quite a few of the core sports. It’s omission as core sport raises some questions, especially since the core sports program was recently reworked. It might not be the most well known Olympic sport, but shooting enjoys a high participation rate at both the Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games. For instance,  all had entries in shooting, when they didn’t even have entries in many of the core sports. Also, with electronic scoring, compelling finals format, and good graphics, it’s not too hard to follow in-person or on television.

    "India is the worst performing nations in the CWG"     well as per last chart  we were third and above Canada .......
     
     
      Rank CGA Gold Silver Bronze Total 1  Australia (AUS)* 80 59 59 198 2  England (ENG) 45 45 46 136 3  India (IND) 26 20 20 66 4  Canada (CAN) 15 40 27 82  
    so if we are the worst performing , Canada ?? 
     
    I personally think that to cut shooting was a clear strategy of the big three to cut india  down to size .......

    Let us look at tomorrows womens qualifiers 
    My take .......
    50 kg : 5 only ..... The top place would definately go to susaki of Jap ...... A double world champ ....I am suprised to see her here ....
    I would give the second to indias seema n this field maybe the mongolian tsogt would also be a contender ....
    But seema for me is definitely a strong quota prospect
     
    53 kgs : tatyana in the upper draw and aktenge of uzb in the lower draw 
    The 57 : the upper draw definitely Anshu from India 
    And mongolian in the lower
     
     
    The 62 : upper draw definately sukhegin of MON ... A world gold medallist again suprising to see her here 

    Lower draw - Sonam looks the one to beat ....China always have a strong team and long jia could upset sonam but I will say Sonam 
     
     
    68 : upper draw CHN and KAZ both have really good players....edge to KAZ 
    Lower draw : all the three are relatively unknown but will give the edge to UZB as she had beaten the indian in junior asians and Kor has been weak 
     
     
    76 : 5 relatively unknown wrestlers so very open ...but still may prefer Aiperi of KGZ and second either of IND or MGL ...

    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

    Ganemat came very close yesterday. At present is sure of Olympic quota but if she wins the quota at European qualifiers, it would go to . If Ganemat had gotten silver instead of Bronze, she would have been next in line to  instead of . 
     
    We are eligible for ranking quota only in 25m Pistol Men, Skeet W and Trap M/W. Skeet was a narrow miss. In Trap Men, we have to win Gold and hope that  gets European quota, anything else is not good enough. In Trap Women, we have to overcome 350 point gap over  and hope that  wins the European quota. In 25m Pistol Men, there are only 15 entries, 4 of whom are not eligible. So, out of the remaining 11 shooters (x3, x2, x2, , ,  , ) the one who finishes highest will get the ranking quota. There is an additional quota on offer at European Championships, so the one finishing second also has a chance.
