Indian boxers need to punch above their weight to bring home medals from Paris
IANS -
The good news is that some young talents managed to impress and could be good future prospects. And bad news is some big names failed, making the Boxing Federation of India a little worried.

Perfect 12 from Indian wrestlers at CWG 2022, but tougher tests await them
IANS -
Before the start of the Birmingham Games, IANS had said that the Indian grapplers had a great opportunity to bag 12 medals in all their weight categories. And the results are in front of everybody to see. Well, there is no rocket science to it. Actually, the past records have suggested that the CWG have always been a happy hunting ground for the Indian wrestlers.

Birmingham 2022 successes could mark the start of a new era in Indian athletics
IANS -
As expected, India experienced a medal rush in boxing, wrestling, weightlifting, badminton and table tennis in CWG. However, the one field which helped shoot up the country's medal tally was athletics. At Gold Coast 2018, India could only manage three medals in the discipline. But this time around, India's athletes set new benchmark, winning eight medals, including one gold, four silver and three bronze, which augurs well for next year's Asian Games and the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

Hockey teams need to brush up their act, be more consistent
IANS -
In that sense, the Indian men's and women's hockey teams at the recently-concluded Birmingham Commonwealth Games went through these same emotions -- the men's team was subdued in its celebrations after losing the final to Australia, while the girls were exuberant and celebrated their win over New Zealand in the shootout with verve gusto to win the bronze

2022 CWG medal count a downer for Mirabai Chanu-led weightlifting contingent
IANS -
Mirabai Chanu's silver medal at Tokyo 2020 was only the second Olympic medal by an Indian weightlifter after Karnam Malleswari won bronze in 2000 at Sydney Olympics. Chanu also became only the second Indian woman after PV Sindhu to win an Olympic silver medal. Though India won an extra medal in weightlifting at CWG 2022, what would rankle the Indian officials is that India could win only three gold medals from Birmingham as compared to five at Gold Coast, but fans are expecting a better show from the Mirabai Chanu-led team in the Paris Olympics.

How Birmingham 2022 fuelled dreams of rich Indian haul at Paris 2024
IANS -
What gives them the confidence to entertain such a dream is the fact that the country bagged 61 medals, just a few short of the 66 it had bagged at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast in 2018, without any contribution from shooting, which was not included in the Birmingham Games. The shooters had contributed 16 medals to India's Gold Coast tally of 66, and the fact that we came so close to matching it in Birmingham proves that Indian athletes have made great progress in other sports too and portends to a good haul in Paris.
