India’s hopes of landing an Olympic medal is getting slimmer with every passing day and the latest disappointment came when one of India’s brightest medal prospects, wrestler Vinesh Phogat lost to Sun Yanan in freestyle 48kg quarterfinals after getting injured. Vinesh Phogat, who registered an impressive 11-0 win in her first bout, had to concede the quarterfinal due to a knee injury. She was trailing 2-1 when she conceded the bout to the Chinese. The injury occurred when Phogat attempted to hold  the Chinese but gave away after  twisting her leg badly. The match was immediately stopped and medical help was called for. The Indian physio, on inspecting Phogat’s injury, declared that she would not be able to continue the fight.

Well the injury setback has disappointed the whole nation and fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment over the tragic incident. Here are some of the tweets:



    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
