The Olympian Escapades

London next year will be carrying the weight of the world’s population at the 2012 Olympics. The earth is likely to tilt at the Great Britain. Many players have created a record and broken few at the 2008 event, some did not get into the action after 2008, some lost then and is now beating to glory and want to come back in 2012. What do they really think of themselves is all here right way.

Usain Bolt – The Jamaican “Road Runner” is already holding the Olympic medals in his hand from his past achievements. Bolt had a disjunction in his career for a short while and not back in track, on the track. He is keenly looking forward for more accolades this 2012 and has an intuition that this victory will certainly make him this Legend. Bolt hold the world record for 100 and 200, with a couple of new challenging athletes coming into the big picture, Bolt is happy to compete with them and also alarmed. He feels much more rejuvenated mentally and sounds stronger and relaxed after a brief break.

Oscar Pistorius – The man with eternal determination and will-power. This double-amputee is all set to win the Olympics next year, with lessening his self best record of 45.25 in the 400.

Saina Nehwal – Ok! We are now in India; this belle is all popping with great fervor and at the top of the world. After losing at the 2008 QF, she feels that Olympic is not a great deal as how she previously perceived. Recently she defeated the World no. 3, Wang Xin at the Sudirman Cup, which made Saina utter the words of high confidence. She made very clear to the media that she is dreaming of the medal, there is nothing dubious about losing. Her certainty about 2012 gala made her think that Chinese players are no God’s people, they can also be dethroned.

Michael Phelps – the human embodiment of a “Shark”. The owner of 14 gold medals in his Olympic career is likely to crash into all the medal coffers this season. The second best swimmer, Ian Thrope did not make a comeback after 2008 in any of the tournaments, Ian is looking forward to take part in 2012 Olympics, but the break was too long, yet he is not intimidated.  Phelps is very muck expecting Ian to come back to give a neck to neck competition.

The Achilles of every sport is all ready to meet the opponents without eschewing even a single probability of losing. The time shall answer who has the vulnerability to lose.

Hello folks! I am Bharathi Murali, 20, a Chemical Engineering student who always look at journalists or journalism students with a little jealousy in my eyes. I belong to Coimbatore now put up in Chennai. Besides writing, blogging I like traveling (on my bike), photography and silence. I have strong belief in philosophy. With regard to sports I just love watching them on TV when it comes to playing them I have tried to play most of the Indian sports with shallow knowledge in each. I am also a part of the University Basketball team and guess more than scoring I take care of defence better and well known for the fouls that I generally commit! I blog at www.thebhavachakra.blogspot.com. In one line I have always admired Bhagat Singh more than Gandhi, I support radicalism!
