A very bad day for Bangladesh

India defeated Bangladesh in Volleyball and Kabadi
Pakistan defeated in Table Tennis.

Hamidul confirmed that he will get Gold in weightlifting, he got a Bronze!

Same for Ekramul who stated he will be getting silver, but got Bronze.

So expected gold in weighlifting is going to remain just expectation!

Swimming even also could not give any gold, although expectation was two.

Now let was look forward to seeing what Footballers do.

Bangladesh-Pakistan match will start at 7:30 PM Bangladesh time, just after 2 minutes after this post.

Let us hope for the best.

How does Bangladesh get beaten in KABADI??

April 1, 2004, 09:55 AM
Possibly Bangladesh could not ever win agains India in Kabadi in any occasion.

Bangladesh tasted defeat even against Japan in the Asiad in Kabadi.

Ekramul Silver Bronze
Hamidul Gold Bronze

And the latest one. Guess what?

After continuous failure, Samedul was expected to give the good news of gold in 100m Breast Stroke. But in the Heat he couldnot finish. Niaz did relatively better.

NewAge has two url systems, one relative and the other actual or absolute. The relative one changes everyday giving the funny asynchrony between caption and image.

Here's the pic with actual url:
