Even by India’s dismal sporting achievements, this one takes the cake !
It's curtains for India's global sporting ambitions as of now, at least. Indian athletes will no longer be able to participate in the Olympics as the Indian Olympic Association has been banned by the International Olympics Committee for its failure to comply with IOA election norms. The norms pertain to elections and interference of government in the functioning of the sports body.
In a typical blame-game which the sporting establishment has become adept at, Sports Minister Jitendra Singh has blamed the IOA for India's suspension by the International Olympic Committee and has said that the "unfortunate" incident could have been avoided had the IOA amended its Constitution.
