  • cbipinc Bipinchandra Chaugule I am Bipinchandra Chaugule, Pune India.



    Great presentation, but I would like to mention that India's first official appearance in Olympics was actually in 1920 Antwerp, Belgium games. The 1900 games in Paris had one runner Mr. Norman Pritchard who got two silvers, but he was British national born to both British parents working in Kolkata. He appeared in Paris games on behalf of Great Britain and gave his address as Kolkata. That is why he is wrongly mentioned as an Indian. The first Indian team went to Antwerp of which my grand uncle Late P.D.Chaugule was a member. He was the only one to complete his event i.e. Marathon, hence he becomes the first Indian to participate and complete an Olympic event. He is the first olympian of India. I have all the proofs and records to prove this fact, if you wish. Here's a link to his team's tour. http://britishlibrary.typepad.co.uk/untoldlives/2012/08/india-and-the-olympic-games.html
