Olympic Blackout

Winter Olympics is in high gear in Torinio, Italy now and there is hardly any coverage in the Indian press. Why is that? Is it because, there is no Indian participation?

  1. I think there is Indian participation.. atleast 2-3 atheletes are representing India.. I read about it in 'The Hindu' a few weeks back.. but, unable to get that link now..

  2. US Radios covers it actively.. I never knew there was hockey team in US... After hearing the new yesterday, thats when I know... :)

    Sure.. US is leading the medals tally.. I am Melbourne now.. and there is lot of coverage here too..
