India's abysmal performance in Asian Games make the sport loving people disheartened, after all. The lack of commitment of sportsperson and their mentors to make India proud in any such international sport-arena is a matter of worry. A large Indian contingent is appeared to be making a merry trip while many of them fail badly after taking all benefits at public cost. What a shame of Indian sports !! Gold medal is won not by entering the court or ground, but through committed preparation. That is what is seen lacked in every disappointed performance this time! So far just one gold for name sake is indeed a non-committal performance we the Indian people would feel ashamed about! The trainers entourage in the merry land should be reprimanded for such a shame they brought on Indian participation.
In which way the media is mentioning that Saina lost in a hard closely fought bout. Losing two games by huge margins 9-21, & 7-21 cannot be described as a close one. Her Chinese rival literally walked away to victory in the 3rd & final game. Saina was panting & out of breath in the 3rd game,and just could not put up a fight. I hope Saina realises that the fault lies in her & not in her earlier coach Gopi, & switching coaches will not help,if you do not take your game more seriously.

It was not a close fight. But, she is not taking game seriously ???? I have seen everyone simply write anything they want just because she was on ramp few times.. Do u know how much time she will be spending on gym & on court ? This is the first match she lost in this asian games (inclding team event).. far better than others. She is the one who put Indian women on world badminton map. Hopefully Sindhu will carry to much greater hight.
