Rio 2016 Olympics: The initial butterflies in the stomach and other first day, first show jitters are over and done with. Already some reputations have been made (19-year-old US shooter Virginia Thrasher who won Rio’s first gold medal) while others have been dented (India’s Leander Paes), if not destroyed. A number of high flying top ranking athletes have bit the dust while relative unknowns have climbed onto the podiums. Unfortunately, none of the sportsmen climbing podiums, as yet, has been an Indian, but that can change. It takes just one shot at glory to do that (Virginia did just that with her medal winning final shot that handed her the 10m air rifle title) and if one is confident and trained with dedication and focus, then nothing is impossible, especially if you are playing selflessly for the country rather than for the self.
Already the medals are fast flying to their rightful winners and a number of countries have emerged at the top. Surprisingly, Australia is leading the medals tally with 3 medals (2golds and a bronze), while an awesome performance from Hungary has given them 2 golds and the United States of America is in third with 1 solitary gold, but also they have 4 silvers in the bag too. There are a number of events lined up for day 2 and what must be on the minds of the fans is what time they are on (schedule) and where can they watch them.
