Dispute over selection of 4X400 m womans relay team for Jakarta Asian Games

The athletes have appealed against the decision in the Supreme court, regular updates will be posted

An open question to ntro, when the athletes are allowed to protest against injustice, why is the domain investor expected to tolerate the ntro financial fraud on her
