Along with Indian contingent, an intruder was found walking at the opening ceremony march past of the London Olympic games. The gate-crasher was later identified as Madhura Nagendra, a postgraduate student from Bangalore.
Madhura was dressed in a red shirt and blue trousers and lead the Indian contingent alongside Beijing games bronze medalist Sushil Kumar. Her presence left the Indian contingent and the people at home fuming with this mismanagement.
Madhura’s father and later Madhura herself claimed that she was selected by Danny Boyle- the official show creator at the Games, for a dance performance.
This incident has shot the Bangalore girl to instant fame. In recent interviews, however, she has admitted deep regret for the infamous event.
