Abdullah Hel Baki from BD came in 25th in the men's 10 meter Air Rifle event. Not too bad. Shooting is an individual sport and affluent families can and should encourage their children to participate in this discipline. This is more democratic than athletics and swimming and will ensure a medal someday.

Excellent, will try to watch it. If he sticks around till round 3 or the final round wont mind flying in to watch in person. What the hell, with no cricket on; might as well support other countrymen who are doing us proud.

Quote:
In the mid-1990s, a mother in Bangladesh sent her 10-year-old son to work in hopes of funding his education. While the father performed odd jobs, his income was not enough, as the family lived a meager existence. They were just glad to be safe; the father had once described their little village as the “criminals’ den.” One local newspaper simply called it a slum.

The son, the second-youngest of four brothers, eventually found a job as a forecaddie at the nearby golf club. He made some money but eventually lost interest in next-level education. In a country mad about cricket, he had become smitten by golf.

Two decades later, that boy – now 31 years old – walked onto the floor of the Maracana Stadium, the world-famous soccer venue that, on this night, had become the epicenter of the sporting universe. Behind him were a handful of countrymen. In his right hand was a six-foot pole, and at the far end was his nation’s flag. A worldwide TV audience estimated at 3 billion watched as he stepped into the spotlight.

No other men’s golfer was so honored.

Siddikur Rahman’s journey to carrying his nation’s flag during the Opening Ceremony of the Rio Olympics is an unlikely one. It’s also an inspiring one, the kind that usually bubbles to the surface during the Olympics, when the chase for glory need not always manifest itself into a gold medal. Just competing often speaks volumes.

“Even though it’s a fairly new sport in Bangladesh, we’re really proud of this,” Rahman said after a practice round this week. “It’s a huge achievement for me, my country and for golf.”

Rahman appearance in the men’s tournament starting Thursday at the Olympic Golf Course is one he hopes will grow the game in Bangladesh. The challenge is daunting. His country is the size of New York. Unlike the Empire State, which has 818 golf courses, Bangladesh has just 15 … and 10 of those are nine-holers.

But then, Rahman – currently a member of the Asian Tour -- has been defeating the odds his entire career.

Nice read

Anyway, don't want to jinx or anything. Siddikur doing well. Has been consistent so far.

And there's no cut in this event. All 60 player will play till the end (throughout 3 or 4 days).

More like USA leads with 11 gold. I hate this total medal stuff. 125+ Silver can't equate to one gold.

This is the same as an online cricket poll...where you will know where and from whom most of the votes will come from....

Canadian women football team is impressive, a win against Germany couple of days ago, and now a win against France is on the way.
Seems like these women are playing better than our boys!
