  1. But I think all of them are beatable if Seema shows the form which she had shown a year or two back. This is Vinesh's weight category before she moved up. Not so difficult for India to get good wrestlers in this weight category. Maybe a temporary blip.
  2. Thanks for that review. I think there is no clear favorite in womens 50Kg in India. Seema may or may not be India #1. If she gets back to form, she may still have a chance. The best in these lower categories usually come from Asia and all the good Asian wrestlers have already qualified. Is there anyone else in the entry list who is very good ?
  3. I think India only has chances in Women wrestling here for gaining any quotas ? Looks difficult in freestyle and greco roman. Is there any preview anywhere on womens wrestling event here or from someone on this forum ?
  4. Jonathan Vetter throws 91.50 mt in a meet in Offenburg and takes the world lead for 2021 over Neeraj Chopra.
  5. 3 Indians in the semi finals. But, do not see much of a chance there.
  6. Thanks. Hope we get 2-3 Indians thru to olympics in Greco from here and the final qualifation tournament. We need some momentum to build up in Greco to get someone good at world level. We have a good guy, Sajjan who has won medals in 3 junior world championships . But, looks like he is taking some time in transitioning to seniors.
  7. Do you reckon any of the Indians having a chance to qualify in Greco Roman ?
  8. If the number of cases per day (200+ day) keep multiplying till April 14, there will be no other option for the Indian govt but to extend the lockdown. Economic pain will be there but the if the lockdown is removed the cases will incrase manyfold. It really a difficult decision for government to take. How many cases we are getting per day in next 10 days will decide it.
  9. Olympics to go on in July this year is becoming more and more difficult by day. So, it is futile to discuss our medal chances as of now. If it gets postponed to say next year, it is tough to predict at this stage since player's form can change a lot in a year.
  10. So, these are QF line ups- Men's Flyweight - Amit Panghal vs. Carlo Palam (PHI) - Amit had won against Palam at last year's world championships 4-1, it can be a close one though with Amit slight favorite Men's Lightweight- Manish Kaushik vs. Chinzorig Baatrasukh (MGL) - Not much know of Mongolian, Manish should be favorite Men's Welterweight- Vikash Krishan Yadav vs. Quicy Okazwa (JPN)- Japanese is 2019 Asian championships silver medalist, so it will be a close one. Men's Middleweight - Ashish Kumar vs. Mikhel Robero Muskita (INA) - Ashish would be favorite Men's Light Heavyweig
  11. Also in close bouts, boxers get nod from judges on reputation too. That is how Amit got it today it seems. He meets a Philipino next who is no pushover. Amit will have to be much better than today to prevail. Gaurav Solanki was unlucky in that respect to draw the top seed and loses to him in close bout. Hope he will qualify in the world qualifying tournament.
  12. This time there were no Chinese and North Korean teams. Also Iran did nit send their best team. So, India's medal tally was a but inflated due to this. We seem to have performed at same level as 2019. I think the only one one who really excelled was Ravi. To an extent Jitender performed above expectations. Bajrag, Deepak Punia, Vinesh lost matches which we were expecting them to fight on even terms. Others pretty much performed upto expectations. So, i would not call this great success for India.
  13. This is the mens team- 52kg Amit57kg Gaurav Solanki63kg Manish Kaushik69kg Vikas Krishan75kg Ashish Kumar81kg Sachin Kumar91kg Naman Tanwar91kg +Satish Kumar A bit surprising that Gaurav Solanki won here ahead of Kavinder Bisht. Otherwise expected results. Good to see Vikas Krishan making an attempt again to qualify for olympics after turning professional.
  14. Thanks a lot. So, Mirabai Chanu seems certain to qualify, very decent chance of a medal too at Tokyo. Any other Indian currently in race for qualifying ?
