PT Usha Is Not Sporting About Formula 1


What  she said:


“I feel very bad because such hi-fi business has nothing to do with 99% of Indians. It is a criminal waste (of money). First, Twenty20 cricket spoiled the spirit of Indian sports, and now here comes another avatar which will mostly attract corporate money, who (Corporate) rarely spend for sports promotion. Only God can save the Indian sports.”


Former track and field superstar, PT Usha, is not enamoured with the Formula 1  Indian Grand Prix to be held on the 30th of October, 2011 at the Buddh International Circuit, NOIDA.


Usha narrowly missed bronze in the 400 meters hurdles at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics and runs an athletic school in her home state, Kerala.


Usha said:


“Till this date I have never and I don’t want to follow any motor business, which I do not want to call as sport.”


What she really meant:


“Neither does the Olympics consider F1 a sport (in cricket’s case—not yet).”


What she definitely didn’t:


“Formula 1 epitomises ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius’.”
