This time Abhinav Bindra won gold and boxer vijander and wrestler sushil kumar won bronzeBut has anyone even reached the final of an Olympic event?
Gyani jiand isnt it also POLITICS ??
In India it is all about POLITICS....
Even in SPORTS..India must be "represented" not by MERITOCRACY..BUT POPULATION WISE !!!..ALL ginntee minntee MUST be kept "politically correct"....How can the Punjabis/Sikhs with a mere 2% of Indian population..be all over the place ?? BRING THEM DOWN ot their 2%....let the rest 98% INDIANS be there..representing..even if they are UNFIT.
I SEE that as the main problem...Same applies to ARMED FORCES recruitment...Civil Service..etc etc...SUBA WISE..not "merit wise"...WHY was the Sikh army representation reduced from 13% in 1947 to under 2% NOW ?? To fit this policy.
Don't know about Olympics, but in the UK we have Rugby players, Soccer players, Kickboxing Champions (like Kash the Flash Gill), Boxers etc etc.But has anyone even reached the final of an Olympic event?
But still I never heard that any sikh playing soccer champions league?Don't know about Olympics, but in the UK we have Rugby players, Soccer players, Kickboxing Champions (like Kash the Flash Gill), Boxers etc etc.
In America too they have American football players.
Physically demanding sports.
First Sikh Boxer In Britain Wins Award#
BARA Rugby - British Asian Rugby Association
But still I never heard that any sikh playing soccer champions league?
also is there any sikh player in UK rugby team?
I watched IPL in both the season and there are not much sikhs in in teamsMany of the Sikh players play at lower levels or are in the academy's.
In the UK we have had problems with games like Football, where it has been shown there is discrimination against people of the Asian subcontinent. Scouts used to just ignore them.
As for Rugby players, again a lot play, but not sure whether their are any candidates for England.
Kenyans and ethopians are blacks and From past 30-40 years Blacks are dominating in athletic sports.Even there is corruption in these countries.I do not agree with the above research. Marathon runners do not need to bulk up. The best examples of long distance runners in the world come from Kenya and Ethiopia, both of which are quite poor countries. Why can't Indians be good long distance runners? That would be a good start.
I have read this interesting piece before and many other papers like that but this still does not explain why do the Australians which have almost no black in all the sports they practice, excel in every sport in comparison to other countries with the population ratio they have as compared to the world?
One can check the Beijing Olympics and the amount of medals they won as compare to the other countries.
Australia is rich country and they have great sporting culture.As I said in my previous post that many sports require financial support so its obvious that rich countries like Australia are going to win medals in that type of sports.
Australia's Medal Winners - Beijing 2008 Olympic Games
Above is the list of Australian medal winners.Most of their medals are coming from swimming and water sports.
For success in many sports along with best genes you require very good facilities like equipments,grounds, pools, coaching ,diet,hard work etc.except America
Hardly any black country is rich and could provide facilities that matches
with the Rich countries.
I watched IPL in both the season and there are not much sikhs in in teams
and sikhs that were playing for team were the some of the worst performers.
So sikhs should improve their performance both in UK and in India
in all the sports.
As I said richness alone cannot be the factor and UK too have won 47 medals and that is not a bad performence at all.Btw I will further read about Australians participating in beijing olympics.You mean Australia is richer than the UK? Check how many sports did the Australians get selected to participate in as compared to other countries.
