Over aged Indian athletes thrown out!

Indian clumsily and awkwardly sports officials were left red-faced on Monday in succession to 17 track and field athletes were thrown out of the ongoing Asian Youth Games in Nanjing, China for being over-aged. An official expressed that the athletes, who were part of a 27-member track and field squad, were barred from taking part in the Games because they were above the stipulated age of 17. Furthermore, the Indian Olympic Association's interim chief Vijay Kumar Malhotra told reporters in New Delhi that it should not have happened. They are trying to find out the reason. In precedence to two days, four Indian badminton players were prevented from competing in Nanjing due to reason that the organisers said their names had not been entered for the competition by officials back home.

That's certainly disgraceful for India!
