    Indeed much remains yet to be done to bring the country on the map of achievers in bigger competitions like ASIAD,Olympics and so on.

    'Concerned people' stands for common citizens of the country, who hear so much about honouring of the outstanding players in Haryana.

    People of Haryana in particular and people of India in general must know how the general policies are twisted in the State to favour or disfavour selectively and the outstanding sports-persons are encouraged/discouraged !

    I am so so proud of you girl!
    After the Canadian got 2 points in the last minute, My heart beat rose, become restless!
    But our lass proved very tough and won the fight!
    Hope other wrestlers Yogeshwar and Geetika would have been inspired too!

    Three Cheers!

    Compared to last CWG games, fewer medals this time but very good show by pehalwans. I think 13 wrestlers, 13 medals, everybody won a medal (5G 6S 2B). Congratulations to all especially takdi jat girls.
    I wish boxers achieve the same. About 5-6 years back, it looked like mhare Haryane mein, boxing will be as big as wrestling. But it is slipping little bit as far as medals are concerned, not sure what is lacking. Look forward to boxing, athletics competition and hockey.

    India and Israel (Hindus & Jews) are true friends in this World. Both are Long Live and yes also both have survived and surviving under adverse conditions.

    Full report in given Link is :

    Almost one-fourth of India’s 215-member contingent at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games hails from Haryana. On the medal front, the state’s share is even higher: one-third of the country’s tally. Of India’s 52 medals as on July 31 (47 already won and five assured by boxers after making it to the semifinals), 16 have been bagged by Haryana’s players.
    Wrestlers from the state have contributed nine medals: four gold - Amit Kumar (57kg), Yogeshwar Dutt (65kg), Babita (55kg) and Vinesh Phogat (48kg) - and five silver - Satywart Kadian (97kg), Bajrang (61kg), Lalita (53kg), Sakshi Malik (58kg) and Geetika (63kg).
    In shooting, Sanjeev Rajput (50m rifle), Anisa Sayyed (25m pistol), Gurpal Singh (50m pistol) and Harpreet Singh (25m rapid fire pistol) clinched silver medals.

    Three medals were assured by boxers Vijender Singh (75kg), Mandeep Jangra (69kg) and Pinki Rani (51kg) by winning their quarterfinal bouts on Wednesday and making it to the medal round. On Friday, they have their semifinal bouts and will get a bronze each even if they lose.

    Ladies first in wrestling family
    Chandigarh, August 01, 2014

    Former state wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat left his Haryana State Electricity Board job in early 2000 to live his dream of bringing glory to the country through his daughters.
    During the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, two of his daughters, Geeta and Babita, won gold and silver, respectively. Two years later, Geeta created history by becoming the country’s first woman wrestler to compete in the London Olympic Games. The same year, both sisters clinched a bronze each in the World Championships. Now in Glasgow, Babita and Vinesh (the daughter of his deceased younger brother) clinched gold in the 48kg and 55kg categories, respectively.
    Inspired by the success of Geeta and Babita, Mahavir’s youngest daughter, Ritu, and the daughters of his brother — Priyanka (22) and Vinesh (20) — too joined the sport. Following the death of his brother, all five girls live and train together, making Mahavir proud.


    Mahavir is one of the country’s few coaches, who can truly claim to have given the country nearly half-a-dozen international-level wrestlers, unlike many other coaches whose only claim to fame is riding piggyback on the success of their wards or spouses.
    Ironically, Mahavir’s efforts continue to be ignored by the sports ministry, despite the coach submitting his application for the Dronacharya for the last five years.
    “I am happy that Babita and Vinesh have won gold. But my target is something else. Till the time one of them doesn’t win a medal in the Olympics, I will not be satisfied,” says Mahavir, who has rejected the marriage proposals for his eldest daughter Geeta so that she can concentrate on the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
    “Initially, Geeta and Babita used to train at a mud akhara, but later, the local government college where they are studying, provided them with wresting mats,” says Mahavir.
    When the girls are not in the national camp, their day starts at 4:30am and the first session lasts till 7:30am. The evening session too is of 3-4 hours. Asked if he felt dejected at not receiving the Dronacharya, Mahavir says, “My mission is to produce champions. If I get the Drona along the way, I’ll accept it. If not, my mission will still go on.”
    Mahavir’s mission began more than a decade ago, when the Phogat family introduced Geeta to wrestling. The father remembers how the Balali village was up in arms, with elders revolting at the idea of a local girl slugging it out in the mud.
    Success in the 2010 CWG turned the tide in his favour and now, winning medals is a routine affair. “Whenever the girls win a medal, the entire village gathers to celebrate,” says Mahavir.
    History is best when created, better when re-constructed and worst when invented.

    India won three silvers and two bronzes on Day 9 of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow while at least another five silvers were assured as four boxers and the squash duo of Dipika Pallikal and Joshna Chinappa made it to the finals.

    The first medal of the day came from Pinki Rani Jangra who lost her semi-final to settle for the bronze medal. The Haryana pugilist gave a tough fight to Michaela Walsh but the Northern Ireland woman's height and better reach helped her win all four rounds.
    The second silver came from Seema Punia in women's discus throw as India continued to do uncharacteristically well in athletics. Seema, who had won a bronze in 2010 Delhi Games and a silver in 2006 Melbourne, threw the discus to 61.61m, her season's best, to grab the silver late last night while defending champion Krishna Poonia could just come up with a below-par effort of 57.84m.
