Olympics: Intruder in Indian contingent

The mystery lady’s name is Madhura Honey, a post-graduate from Bengaluru.

She spoilt the entire Indian march past in London Olympics

Just after the Indian contingent, comprising 40 athletes and 11 officials entered the stadium, it was surprising to see an unidentified lady, wearing a red jacket and turquoise blue tights, also walk right at the front.

“It was an eyesore and she spoilt the entire Indian march past. Before entering the arena, the identity card of each Indian athlete and official was checked by security. I think there should be an inquiry into how this lapse took place and the LOCOG has to explain to India,” Indian acting chef de mission PK Muralidharan Raja.

Meanwhile, an Indian newspaper Deccan Chronicle said the mystery lady’s name is Madhura Honey, a post-graduate from Bengaluru. The daily reported her friend from the college was also baffled seeing her with the Indian contingent. She has been living in London and before she went with the Indian team, she had displayed her Olympic passes on her Facebook account. But once this became an issue, she had deactivated her Facebook account.

The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) is upset that someone strayed into the march past and it could actually have security implications as well. The IOA made sure everybody at the ceremony conformed to the dress code.

At the Beijing Olympics in 2008, Sania Mirza came in for a lot of flak as she took part in the march past wearing jeans. The tennis duo of Sania Mirza and Sunitha Rao were attired in black trousers and practice jackets. Not only did the two not follow the dress code, the contrast was even more jarring to the eyes when they walked with Delhi paddler Neha Aggarwal who chose a greenish saree for the occasion.

  1. Madhura honey?very very strange name. Odd name . Never heard of such a name.
    Are you sure it is that person? If so why there is one more official, girl in white, beside her? looks like a cheap attention seeker who wants cheap publicity. Nice she did not undress and streak on the venue as expected from such characters

        Indian newspaper Deccan Chronicle said the mystery lady’s name is Madhura Honey, a post-graduate from Bengaluru. Her LinkedIn profile shows her name as Madhura Nagendra.

    • what she done is right, it was her wish may be. everyone must praise her talent to enter actually. All fucking politicians are corrupted, so it is nothing infront of that. carry on madhura honey

  2. This so called ‘Madhura Honey’ should be punished in a third world country prison. She will see all the Olympics of the next millennium in one night. People will hesitate to behave like this in future. The Indian team management should take the issue seriously and the organisers will respond in the identical direction. Otherwise Mitt Romney will get the chance to call London OLympics a foul play displayed with four years of preparation.
