And even after she collapsed, it was the Games medical help which came forward and not a single official from the Indian contingent came forward to the help of the fainted runner. It took her seven bottles of glucose to recover and will still take 2-3 months of medical recovery.
It’s appalling to see that each country’s officials were present at every 2.5 interval to provide for water and refreshments to its runners; but from India there were just empty desks and national flags.
”I don’t know how I managed to finish without getting enough water to drink. The Games organizers provided water and sponge only at 8-km intervals. The water from these stations lasted hardly 500m and it was almost impossible to run after the 30-km mark under the scorching sun.”
With such circumstances, the players really deserve a medal for putting up with Indian officials considering their glorious actions to embarrass India at Rio Olympics this year.
