Even though they have made the nation proud by wining 5 medals, the Indian deaflympics team received a cold reception when they arrived at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) in the nation’s capital after concluding the 23rd edition of Summer Deaflympics in Samsun, Turkey.

The Olympic team comprising of 46 athletes with support staff were seemingly disenchanted for all the right reasons as they failed to get recognition despite winning big in this year’s Summer Deaflympics.

“All the boys fought really hard for this,” Indian deaflympics coach was quoted as saying.

The coaches revealed that their staff had already informed the sports authority about their triumphant campaign and gave the details about the players who made the nation proud but still there was nobody from the authorities to give them a tap on their back when they arrived back home.

With the amount of humiliation faced by the deaflympics, the team staff and players are now holding a protest inside the airport for receiving such cold reception.
