Congrats to Silver and Bronze Winners.

But one questions asked by everyone, Why just 2 medals ? and No Gold Medal ?

Olympic level sports person are not built overnight, it is a continuous process and requires time and effort. Sports bodies are expected to identify the right talent, at the right age, support and train them to Olympic level. Unfortunately, our sports bodies are not able to do this.

As per the survey 92% citizens believe funds misuse and corruption is common in State Sports Departments and Bodies. The politicisation of Indian sports is the root cause for the country not being able to create world class athletes.



The allegations and denial.



Some athletes and coaches say chief medical officer Pawandeep Singh's standard response to most complaints of injuries has been a dose of Combiflam.



There are interesting recommendations here of how sports can be improved.
