When it comes to Cricket, fans just can’t stop cheering and even encourages the Indian cricket team players to excel. Even if they win in one of the smallest matches, fans cheers and appreciate. When we talk about sports in our country, sportsmen are given more attention and respect as compare to sportswomen. Not only public, even the media doesn’t give these talented women’s much attention and appreciation on their respective news channels. If you think I am wrong, then today I have a reason or you can say example to prove my point.
The entire nation and media is not giving any cheer , appreciation or attention to the women who won the Gold at the ISSF Shooting World Cup in Germany.The sportswomen ApurviChandelawon the Gold in the 10m Air Rifle category, which is her second World Cup gold medal. The sportsman RahiSarnobat also won the Gold medal for nation in the 25m Pistol category. With this win, Rahimade his place in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Apart from these two duo, the 17-year-old Saurabh Chaudhary also won gold in the Men’s 10m Air Pistol contest.
Isn’t it a great news? But, no media house or journalist is showing this great win and not even bothered to talk about it. Not only there is a shameful negligence towards the sportswomen but there is also ignorance towards the other sports. As the laurels by the sportspersons at the ISSF world cup are not reported, which is not the first time. The women laurels for the nation is not discussed by the nation media as they are busy talking and wishing luck to Indian cricket team for the tournament which is not even started yet.
Talking about the ISSF world cup, India is leading in the tournament with three Gold medals. The two Gold medals which will come home are earned by two women. China has one gold medal, one silver medal, and three bronze medals right now. With such a amazing win there is a hope that sportspersons are going to do well in the upcoming Olympic as well.
