Q.

India along with other South Asian countries should try for inclusion of Kabadi as an event for the next Olympic Games. Kabadi is a popular game in South Asia. In fact some of the events no so popular as Kabadi are in the Olympic Games now. So it is not difficult to include Kabadi for the next Olympics. What is needed is some lobbying and exerting pressure on International Olympic Committee. Your comments please?

Kabaddi, the popular Asian Game with its roots in India has all the ingredients to make it an Olympic sport.

This combative sport befits the motto of the Olympics Altius, Citius & Fortius since it involves agility, good muscular co-ordination, presence of mind, dare, quick reflexes etc,. For a berth in the Olympics, a sport requires to be popular among a large number of people all aver the world, it should have standard rules and regulations and bring out the motto of the Olympics i.e., swiftest, highest and strongest. Kabaddi fulfills all these requirements.

Very soon we will have this magnificent sporting event featuring in the olympics.

Kabaddi has already been included in Asiad. I think within 2-3 decades we will see it included in Olympics also.
