    NEW DELHI: India’s athletes lost all hope on Wednesday of competing under the national flag at the Winter Olympics after the country’s suspended Olympic association said it would hold elections two days after the Games open in Sochi. The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) will hold a poll to elect new leaders on February 9, meaning luge medal hope Shiva Keshavan and three other competitors will be classed as independents, not as Indians. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) froze India’s membership in December 2012 after the national association in New Delhi elected a number of tainted officials to key posts.
