Iconic Indian athlete Anju Bobby George questioned the Indian Olympic Association’s (IOA) decision to ‘not consider’ ‘Golden Boy’ Neeraj Chopra as India’s flag bearer for the upcoming Paris Olympics 2024. Earlier this month ace ping-pong player Sharath Kamal will be the Flag Bearer of the Indian team for the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympic Games, while Olympic bronze medalist MC Mary Kom has been named chef de mission for the Summer Games.

The Commonwealth and Asian Games medalist took to Instagram to question the IOA’s decision not to consider Neeraj as the flag bearer and wrote, ‘Surprisingly, the Indian Olympic Association did not consider our golden boy Neeraj Chopra as the flag bearer for the Olympic Games 2024.. ?? ??? (All federations including table tennis are yet to announce the team for the Olympics) ?Ultimately it is Neeraj’s choice based on his own assessment of the situation..still..why ???…@weareteamindia. ‘

The world number 88 has won the national table tennis championship ten times, a record. He has won 13 medals at the CWG, including seven gold medals. He has also won two medals at the Asian Games. The legendary TT player is also a three-time World Championships bronze medalist.

Mary is the first female boxer in boxing history to win six world titles. The five-time Asian champion was the first female boxer from India to take home a gold medal at the 2014 Asian Games.
The veteran boxer won a bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics, leaving any record or title untouched. She introduced herself to the world at the age of 18 at the first world meeting in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

“We are delighted to have such a distinguished and capable team of officials leading our contingent for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Their expertise, dedication and passion for sport will undoubtedly inspire our athletes to be the best they can be and make the nation proud to make,” says Indian. Olympic Association (IOA) President PT Usha said this in an official statement on Thursday on X.

Gagan Narang, a bronze medalist in the 10m air rifle event at the 2012 London Olympics, has been appointed head of shooting village operations for the Paris Olympics. The shooting, which gave India its first individual Olympic medal in 2008, has not produced an Indian medalist since London 2012.

The Olympic Games take place from July 26 to August 11.
