RIO 2016

 “Games of XXXI Olympiad”, commonly known as 
Rio 2016” was an exciting international multi-sport event which was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Rio became the first South American city to host the Summer Olympics.
It was a sixteen days event which ran from 5th to 21st August 2016. Olympics is held every fours years and the main objective of Olympics is to promote friendship and harmony among nations.

More than 11,000 athletes from 207 National Olympic Committees took part. India managed to qualify 118 players for the Rio event. Female players proved to be the actual heroes of the country.
India’s performance was not upto the mark, barring one exceptional performance from gymnast Dipa Karmakar, who qualified for the finals of the vault event.
In wrestling Sakshi Malik grabbed a bronze.
Badminton player, PV Sindhu got silver medal.
Aditi Ashok qualified for golf final, and Lalita Babar became the first Indian athlete to qualify for track and field finals, 32 years after PT Usha.

What made the performers perform this way? It was indeed unsatisfactory. According to my opinion, somewhere the government is also responsible for such a performance. If we compare the facilities and equipments provided to an Indian performer and an International performer we’ll get the answer. An Indian performer is not provided with adequate, latest facilities and equipments for training. As a conclusion, both the performer and government are equally responsible for such a performance. India should take a step forward in providing better facilities, equipments and trainers to the players. May be then India would perform better in future.
