Today is the official opening ceremony of London Olympics 2012 and what a countdown we’ve had here! The UK has been gripped with the Torch Relay fever and quite few Nepali people also got the opportunity to run with the torch or atleast hold it. The most popular story being of 18 year old Suman Gurung who ran the relay in Sheffield. Our official Nepal team arrived few days ago and are now comfortably based in the Olympic Village in Stratford. Did you know that Nepal made its Olympic debut back in 1964 and since then have made 11 appearances so far. Our competitors excel in taekwondo, judo and swimming. Strangely we do not have any one competing in taekwondo this year. Our youngest competitor is 17 year old Shreya Dhital who will be swimming womens 100m freestyle!

Sneh Rana – SHOOTING (Womens 10m air rifle)
Prasidhha Jung Shah – SWIMMING (Mens 50m freestyle)
Shreya Dhital – SWIMMING (Womens 100m freestyle)
Pramila Rijal – ATHLETICS (Womens 100m)

  8. @nepal – “i say…

    What is wrong with 100m Swimming? or participating in any Olympic sport for that matter. You have to start somewhere, and grow stronger from there. At least these five athletes from Nepal have shown to Nepali’s in Nepal and around the world, that we’re capable of achieving success in Olympic sports other than Taekwondo. Who would have thought Nepal would have entered ‘Air Rifle Shooting’ or ‘Running’, maybe others will now take an interest, which can only be a good thing.

    Look to China, they have been smart in their progress, they identified Sports which the traditional leading nations weren’t good at and excelled at them (grooming them young plays a part).

    But look at our culture too, about time we stopped pressuring our kids to be doctors and engineers and be who they want to be.
