There is no denying the fact that Indians are pretty happy with the manner in which the Indian sportspersons have performed in the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics as it was the best ever performance by India at the Olympics.
India came at the 48th position but no complains as the Indian sportspersons left no stone unturned in giving their best shot for the country. In the Tokyo Olympics, India won seven medals (1 Gold, 2 Silver, 4 Bronze) and there were many moments which not only made us proud but emotional as well.
The Olympics Committee also decided to make the event a little more special by releasing a video of more than 4 minutes which had the most emotional moments of the Olympics but what was not just shocking but disturbing too was that there was not even a single moment of any Indian player.
The Olympics Committee completely ignored the Indian sportspersons and featured the sportspersons of other countries, in fact sportspersons from some countries were featured more than once and this made Indian fans very angry.
This Olympics has been quite special for Indians as on one side, Neeraj Chopra won the first Gold medal ever for the country in the history of Olympics in athletics, on the other side, the Indian men’s hockey team broke the 41 years old jinx by winning the Bronze medal. How can we miss the special moments which were created and experienced by PV Sindhu, Mirabai Chanu, Ravi Kumar Dahiya, Lovlina Borgohain and Bajrang Punia and filled us with joy and excitement….
Well, here is the video released by the Olympics Committee:

This is how Indian Twitterati slammed the Olympics Committee for completely ignoring the Indian sportspersons:
Not a single snap of Indian Athelete, really a Hipocrisy and maximum Snaps are from certain specific countries only.

That's what we have to learn, don't be so emotional with a little bit of response towards us 🥱!! All have been using our audience since years because it's easy to attract Indians.. Now, event is over, nothing left for us 🙌
All about business you know!

Classic example of subtle racism from the usual suspects. 🤬 I atleast expected neeraj to feature since he won gold medal. Now that Olympics are over and they don't need Indian viewership they are back to thier level. 🤬

Very disappointed there is no Indian player in this video

You @Olympics must change
caption should be "some random emotional moments….#stronger parted
Or your tagline as " Olympics- discouraging people through Olympic values of animosity , disfavour & excellence(hypocrisy)..
But @WeAreTeamIndia will make you regret for the same..
