Written by Shivani Naik | Rio De Janeiro | Updated: August 22 2016 8:54 am Mo Farah defended his 5000m title to consolidate Britain’s second position on medals table at the Rio Games Britain ended the Games with more golds than China (Source: Reuters) Top News Medal tables are not just descending numbers of the Olympics – they tell stories of a country on the rise – or on the decline as the case may be – and point to trends that go beyond flaunt figures USA:The all-time leaders crossed yet another landmark – reaching a 1000 gold medals all-time They in fact stand at 1020 currently Michael Phelps Katie Ledecky Simone Biles Ryan Murphy were the gold collectors it was the usual mother sports – athletics swimming and gymnastics that kept the country on track Boxing tennis wrestling golf though seemed to have chipped in with fewer than they normally would Great Britain:They’ve been the story of the Games – the impetus received from London seeming to have carried forward to the next Games as well with the unified islands notching up one medal (at the time of printing) more than London even – 66 The number of golds had dipped marginally though Cycling and rowing in all fetched a third of those medals prompting Gary Linekar to guffaw that them Brits were basically brilliant at “sitting on their arses” The serious numbers trotted out of course have been how GB spent 55 mill GBP on each medal and the lottery system clicked We like Linekar’s light take on it though China:The biggest non-story of the medal count There’s been speculation for a while now that China has been slashing budgets spent on elite athletes and broadbasing the funds across the general population worried about rising obesity in the country though details on this are sketchy At first glance the serious dips have happened in gymnastics (down from 12 to 2 total) and badminton (down from 8 to 3) The economic slowdown was expected to hit spending on sport but the slide has been drastic over the

talent in every sport from badminton to pistol shooting to rugby and of course athletics and gymnastics They are the perennial shock team of rugby sevens now and Tokyo will see a certain surge Brazil:Not like China or GB Brazil didn’t really splurge on training their athletes like the previous two hosts but their gold medals were emotionally valuable for a country that received a lot of bad press before the Games began The football gold was joined by the second favourite team sport – volleyball as the entire country watched rapturously and with bated breath as the top teams gunned for gold on successive days Brazil added new medals in gymnastics and boxing gold as they jumped from 22 to 13 at their home games The gold apart nothing will ever match beach volleyball at Copacabana For

team in 1970s File Top News Davis Cup in the 70s meant that the Amritraj family would attend the ties Rather they would suffer through it Anand Amritraj remembers his mother holding a rosary whenever India played while his father would circle the stadium “He couldn’t sit and watch He’d take rounds of the stadium listening to the crowd Every time people would cheer he knew we won a point If there was silence we’d lost a point” he recalls “That happened for every Davis Cup match Not so much during the regular tour matches” he adds laughing Watch What Else Is Making News It was the same thing the last time Pune hosted a tie 43 years ago Rewind to 1974 Anand Amritraj was a 22-year-old looking for a permanent break in the Davis Cup team India were 2-1 up in the Davis Cup semi-final against the USSR at Pune’s Deccan Gymkhana a win would take them through to the final But Amritraj had never beaten an opponent from a big tennis-playing nation in the Davis Cup before In the fourth rubber he was trailing Teimuraz Kakulia 2-1 after three sets “My parents were there My brother Vijay was there They were all nervous wrecks It was do-or-die because they knew that if I lost this match Vijay would have to play (Alex) Metreveli in the fifth rubber which he probably wouldn’t have won” Amritraj says It would not come down to that Amritraj slogged it out till five sets at a time when the tiebreaker rule didn’t exist to win 6-2 8-10 4-6 6-3 6-3 in front of 12000 fans seated on wooden stands “It was absolute chaos” First big win It was Amritraj’s first ever singles win against a big team – a victory that announced him on the world stage and a permanent fixture on the Indian Davis Cup team “A year before I won against Pakistan and the team captain Ramanathan Krishnan was convinced that he had found a second singles player But after Russia my place on the team was cemented” he recalls The win took India to its second Davis Cup final and propelled the former world number 74 to becoming one of the core members of the Davis Cup team He went on to play in 39 ties The association would continue even after he retired in 1988 In 2013 he was appointed non-playing captain of the team And now as Pune hosts its first Davis Cup tie since 1974 Amritraj remembers his first major win “You don’t realise the magnitude of what you did at that point because you think it’s going to happen again Only now you look back and say ‘oh my God that was great’” Amritraj played his own part to relive that memory Three years ago he travelled to the Deccan Gymkhana to visit the courts where he won the tie that set him up onto the big stage “They don’t have the grass courts anymore It’s a running track now” he smiles He’s back again But it’s a cruel coincidence that while the USSR tie established his career the upcoming one against New Zealand will be his last in any capacity with the Davis Cup team “It came to an end quicker than I thought It’s not what I wanted nor what the players wanted So it’s kind of bittersweet that the last time is in Pune” The AITA decided against renewing Amritraj’s contract as captain instead giving the honours to Mahesh Bhupathi after the New
