Mystery woman in Indian contingent a cast member, says Coe

Mystery woman in Indian contingent a cast member, says CoeLondon: The mystery woman who gatecrashed the opening ceremony of the London Games Friday night with the Indian contingent was a cast member "should not have been there," Sebastian Coe, the London Olympics organising committee chairman, said Sunday.

"I hear she was a cast member who got slightly overexcited. She should not have been there. But don`t run away with the idea that she just walked in. We`ll look at it for next opening ceremony," said Coe.

The appearance of a mystery woman in the Indian contingent at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics has infuriated the Indian Olympic Association (IOA), which has asked the organisers to thoroughly probe the incident.

Indian media reports Sunday identified the woman in a bright red top, walking alongside Indian flag bearer Sushil Kumar, as Bangalore-based Madhura Honey.

"There is no mysterious girl. The incident just exposes the tall claims made by the organisers regarding security. Just imagine if this had happened in India that a person without any accreditation had walked ino the main arena, that too along with a contingent ... all hell would have broken out in this side of the planet," an IOA spokesperson said.

"IOA has filed a complaint and is waiting for a reply from London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG). Some say the girl was a volunteer. Even if that was the case, how did she manage to sneak in without an accreditation card hanging around her and if she was security cover, then she had no business to be walking in front of the contingent hogging all the limelight," the official said.

We all feel ashamed for her thoughtless act. Nearly 200 countries participated, but our great Indian acted in this senseless act. It seems neither Law abiding nor any discipline to follow the rules. I have a question before you blaming others, what are you doing?

This is a major security lapse and is a much serious issue than it has been projected . . . what if she was someone with a terrorist motive, strapping bombs? The biggest surprise is how could she walk-in without any security badge? She should be arrested and put behind bars on the charges of intention to harm Indian sportsmen. Seems harsh but one needs to set an example of people like these so that such incidents are not repeated

Relax people! This woman should apologize and understand why it is such a big deal. Instead of blaming everything on UK and sending everybody else in the world to the gallows, take a note of the bigger deal: OUR Indian players are upset over shoddy kits provided by some godforsaken DIDA company of INDIA. How lame that they just picked a name from in between aDIDAs. How outrageous is it to supply bad quality kits to Olympic performers. LOL! This is hilarious comic book material.
