#IND Rising Again In Olympics - #Thread

This is going to be a bit long but really interesting as how from one #Bronze at Sydney 2000 we have come to 7 #Medals after 20 years; a journey guided by @geetssethi and @padukoneprakash
1/11
Yes, the two maestros and grand champs of their era. So, the story begins at the end of #Sydney2000, where India was sitting in the medal tally with only one #Bronze, a wholehearted thanks to @kmmalleswari to get us in the medal tally.
2/11
After the olympics, Geet Siriram Sethi ws invited to a dinner hosted for the Indian Contingent. While talking to them he had observed the primary cause behind the dejection in our athletes; Money. For past all those years our athletes were not been given any cash incentives. 3/11

Why state of #sports in India needs a push now?

A Thread
@IndiaSports @YASMinistry @Media_SAI
The #school curriculums still have tiny space for sports. Indian mentality goes on with the saying, “Kheloge kundoge toh banoge kharab, padhoge likhoge toh banoge nawab.”
This means that those who focus on sports are not valued, but those who are only focused on studies excel. With such a mentality, how can India expect to compete with nations like #China, the #USA, the #UK etc in the #Olympics?

BOOMERS APPRECIATION THREAD 1/15: Hearing @AndrewGaze10's emotional post-game tribute to Boomers past and present made me consider that so many supporters also have a #BoomersStory of being inspired by this team and culture. Myself included... #GoBoomers #RGVO
2/15 Playing basketball as a kid for the South Adelaide Panthers, we'd stretch pre-game in 'Mike's Corner'. Named after the legendary Boomer Michael Ah Matt. I knew someone from my club had played for Australia. Could I do that one day too? #GoBoomers #RGVO
3/15 In high school (aspiring towards playing professional basketball) I was captivated by the Boomers of 1996 and 2000 particularly the leadership of @ShaneHeal and @AndrewGaze10. Not knowing at the time, I'd be lucky enough to work with them many years later. #GoBoomers #RGVO

Here’s why this win by the women’s hockey team is being hailed as one of India’s greatest sporting performances ever.. (1/8)

(2/8)
This is only the 3rd Olympic appearance for the Indian women’s hockey team. So just reaching here was a big deal, let alone making the semis.....
(3/8)
Their last olympic campaign was a disaster. They failed to win a single game at #Rio2016 finishing last in their group. ..

À mi-JO, la France compte 19 médailles :
🥇 4
🥈 9
🥉 6

À #Rio2016, au soir du samedi 13 août, la France comptait 18 médailles :
🥇 5
🥈 8
🥉 5

Elle en a finalement obtenu 42 :
🥇 10
🥈 18
🥉 14

À #Tokyo2020, la France peut-elle encore atteindre son objectif de 40 médailles ?
Dans son édition du 23 juillet, @lequipe avait recensé 57 chances de médailles, dont 27 accessibles après le 1er août. Deux étant hors course (Hamadouche et Oumiha), il ne resterait donc que 25 chances de médailles d'après le quotidien sportif.
Le fait est qu'un certain nombre de chances de médailles ont disparu. La boxe (déjà bien moins représentée qu'à Rio) a ainsi failli avec un seul qualifié en 1/4.

En 2016, elle avait largement contribué aux derniers rebondissements de la moisson (6 médailles en fin de JO).

Tras esta presentación de la delegación 🇪🇸, vamos con un análisis más detallado deporte a deporte. En total serán 38 modalidades deportivas con representación.

Iré completando el hilo poco a poco a lo largo de los próximos días.
🏹TIRO CON ARCO🏹

🚹Daniel Castro
🚺Inés de Velasco

Finalmente solo habrá un arquero por sexo. Una pena, ya que ambos equipos se quedaron cerca en el Preolímpico y hubieran tenido opciones de dar la camapanada.

Ambos compiten en individuales y el equipo mixto.
El sistema de eliminatorias por sets a 3 (individual) o 4 (mixto) flechas hace que las sorpresas estén a la orden del día.

No parten como favoritos, pero pueden poner en aprietos a los mejores, especialmente en el mixto. Clave evitar a 🇰🇷 hasta semis.

Tactics that Differentiates Medalists in Elite Men’s #1500m #Championship #Racing

It all started following #rio2016 final chats with @nickwillis @stevewillis_NZ

youtube.com/watch?v=Grf_62… Image
@nickwillis @stevewillis_NZ @TStellingwerff @stevemagness @Scienceofsport @BiomechMax @ALTIS @simonrogersNZ @bendaytoday @FrontSportsAL @sweatscience (2)I shared a race velocity profile to which Nick shared tactics was the key in the end result. He was absolutely right, a velocity profile (which predominates the majority of this work in the area of tactics/pacing) – gives only a very surface characterization of what’s going on
@nickwillis @stevewillis_NZ @TStellingwerff @stevemagness @Scienceofsport @BiomechMax @ALTIS @simonrogersNZ @bendaytoday @FrontSportsAL @sweatscience (3) I felt pretty useless in being able to provide useful insights to support what tactically was going on. We had to evolve our approach… First is what we found...(followed by practical apps, then future researcher discussions).
