Rio Olympics 2016 has been full of surprises for every Indian. Some were disappointed, the rest were proud, but at the end all are hopeful.
Once when there were barely any women contenders in Olympics from India, today the medallists in Rio Olympics are two remarkable women athletes.
Although, achieving such a landmark must have been one roller coaster ride for not just these but every Indian athlete that appeared in Olympics this year, given the current scenario where they had to face a whole lot of obstacles even to reach Rio for the final showdown.
This in fact is the case for every Indian athlete, because neither the government nor the respective ministries are keen to help them in any way.
So who is to be blamed for their failure, when the system itself is not supportive enough?
That’s the question we try to decode in this episode of Cover Story and for this we have a very interesting panel Ali Abbas Zafar, Director of the Film ‘Sultan’; Shimon Sharif, Shooter; Pradeep Magazine, Former Sports Editor & Commentator; Novy Kapadia, Sports Columnist & Commentator in conversation with the Senior Executive Editor of NewsX, Priya Sahgal.
