Hearing Impaired Athletes Upset With Apathy, Refuse To Leave Airport

The Indian contingent of hearing impaired athletes for the Deaflympics that concluded in Turkey recently, refused to leave the airport at New Delhi on Tuesday as they were unhappy that there was no one around to recognise them or celebrate their success after they tallied five medals, including one gold, in the best showing ever for the country. The contingent, consisting of 46 athletes and support staff, are upset with the government and the Sports Ministry and are reportedly not willing to budge from their stand and want to return their medals.
