Twitteraties Troll Sports Minister For Calling Sakshi and Sindhu ‘Rio Gold’ Medalists

The Rio Olympics might be are over, but it seems troubles for Sports Minister Vijay Goel is far from done.

Goel, who was pulled into a controversy because of his entourage back in Rio, has once again found himself in thick of things by forgetting which medals India won at Rio Olympics.


People too were not that forgiving and soon started trolling him for his mistake.


In the past month alone, Goel has become the butt of all jokes by almost gotten his Rio accreditation cancelled, misspelling gymnast Dipa Karmakar as “Dipa Karmanakar”, and confusing athletes Dutee Chand and Srabani Nanda amongst other things.

Though later Goel tried to salvage the situation later by saying, “I wanted to say medallist but ended up saying gold medallist”, the damage was already done.
