How India can win 10 or more Olympic Gold Medals by 2020


I got mixed reactions for my post questioning over-the-top celebrations by Indians on winning solitary Gold Medal. India as on today, has atleast 3 medals in its kitty (first time ever) and I am extremely happy and proud about that !

However, India can achieve 10 times more medals in Olympics. Do you want to know how?

Sramana Mitra has been writing series of posts on Vision India 2020 pertaining to various verticals and one of her posts puts across an interesting thought.

One of her post deals with a media company called NCTV and how it can change Indian sports for good. It is an interesting concept and I urge readers to go through it.

    What I found quite irritating was that when Abhinav Bindra won the Gold Medal, the government rewarded him Rs. 1 Cr. Now I’m not saying that he doesn’t deserve the nations praise, but what if we could have used even half of that to invest in developing our sporting facilities and training our athletes? This is classic Indian Politics – back a winner to ride the wave his success. Its highly short-termist attitude.

    China is currently in first place in the Gold medals tally – with 51. They’re not any more physically superior than us Indians, so you can throw that arguement out of the window. How have they been able to achieve this? Focused government support for sporting facilities and training.
