Four years ago, In London Olympics Coach Limba Ram watched surrender from Deepika Kumari at the Lord’s cricket ground helplessly. This time, Limba Ram is sure that the talented Jharkhand girl would be more focussed.

“I will stay awake at night to follow them in Rio. I’m sure the women’s team will achieve the elusive medal. A bronze, at least. It’s important for Deepika to not lose her focus,” the former Olympian Limba told.

No one keeps a track of Limba these days but he is unperturbed. “It’s true that nobody talks to me now but a true Hindustani will always support India, be it being there or here,” Limba added.

He went on to name the coaches, seemingly to establish that he’s not totally out of the loop despite the fact that very few know about his whereabouts. “I keep reading their news. I’m happy that we have a good coach in Dharmendra Tiwari. He’s very dedicated and the best man for the job,” the former Asian and Commonwealth champion said.

Since then, Limba changed his number, and went back to his homeland in Rajasthan where the state government gave him the role of a sports officer and he also got married last year. “Everything went haywire in London. I wanted to start a new life and I’m happy being here,” he told.

Limba is hopeful that things will change for better in Rio. “There’s no reason why we cannot win any medal in Rio. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. It looks very clear to me, the team is in a very good shape, I’m very hopeful,” he said.
