Olympic postponement not stopping teen sensation Aditi Ashok from preparations

Her dream couldn’t be contained at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro four years ago.

Aditi Ashok, India’s teen wunderkind, was the talk of her sport, unexpectedly soaring into a share of the lead during the second round of the women’s golf competition.

Today, her dream of returning to the Summer Games is officially locked down.

India prime minster Narendra Modi went on national television Tuesday to impose strong, new restrictions on the nation’s 1.3 billion residents in a bid to contain the spread of coronavirus.

“There will be a total ban on venturing out of your homes,” he said.
