Yesterday was the golden day for India In Olympics. Abhinav Bindra won the first individual Gold for India. but it seems the good spirit continued for just one day. Again today the bad days are back. Rathore and Jung could not qualify. it seems again we have to be satisfied with one medal.Why India performs so dismal in any games competetion?

I hope it the beginning... You need a talent hunt..proper sponsors..I mentioned yesterday...how about reality shows for different events , with sponsors .. Just like you have in INDIA , for singing and dancing. If some one serious.. this would bring more glory to nation , in the world of sports...

It all depends on good selection of people and good practice. Internationally people practice for years and our people practice for months. there comes the difference. Also there are factors like selecting policy, influence, recommendation, ....

Simple reasons.. 1) Separate the political influence in picking up the olympic contigent and in all fields of sports.. 2)Officials must utilise the fully alloted funds to develop the infrastructure,.. and in organising skill finding camps and training camps..
