Guangzhou, Nov 14: Indian Gymnasts were left all alone by their Russian coach, at the Asian Games, claiming that his team officials were racists. Vladimir Chertkov, 51, whose contract is up to this Asian Games, deserted team India on Sunday and returned to India, as he was not given the permission, to attend the opening ceremony of Asian Games. Indian chef- de -mission Abhay Singh Chautala confirmed that Vladimir was unhappy with the uniform, and was arguing about that, as he wanted to wear only jeans and T-shirts. “Our team officials said him to stick to the dress code that we made, but he didn’t obeyed and refused to wear , due to this refusal, team officials restricted him to attend the ceremony, that’s what I heard the last news” said Chautala.

When Vladimir returned to India, he slammed the team officials of being racists, and saying that they humiliated and discriminated against him, by which he was disappointed and upset. “It was really an insult direct on my face” Chertkov was quoted as saying by the Press Trust Of India news agency. “It was very humiliating as well as discriminating, and the way they told to me not to attend the ceremony, I can assure that, it was racism” said Chertkov.

Recalling the incident Vladimir said that when I was given a dress to wear, it was not fitting it, so when I asked them, that if I can wear a dress equally similar to it, maybe with same colour , as it may match the Olympic style and look casual and descent. Later the team officials said that, as the uniform is not ‘fit’ for me, I should not participate in the opening ceremony which was really strange and weird. The team official said me I cannot go with them so I can leave”.

Hello everyone this is Ronak Parekh and I’m currently student of S.Y.B.M.M. I’m 20 years old from Mumbai. I choose my career in B.M.M because I always wanted to do something which is of my interest. And my passion has always been sports especially cricket and F1. I really want to be linked with sports in my future. B.M.M course gives the opportunity in journalism from where I can move to sports category. When I was child I always used to play and watch cricket a lot which usually most of the people does. I gained my interest in F1 due to only one man and that was none other than seven time world champion Michael Schumacher. Actually I’m also very passionate about cars so it is really fun when I see this sport. Today I’m really excited about getting an opportunity to do internship for three months with the sports mirror, where I will have full freedom to express my views and opinions regarding every sport. I definitely will try my best to write the articles as good as possible which would be worth interesting for readers. I really whole heartedly thanking the sports mirror again for giving me this vital opportunity and I promise I will make the most of it.
