An Olympics Wonderment

It seems weird to me that India, a country with maybe 52 trillion people, has only 4 Olympic medals so far. I guess they are really not into sports.

Or maybe they can't afford the training.

yes, I think it is more what Jazz said.
they do put a lot of effort into cricket, though!

I am actually always surprised at the number of countries who do send athletes and imagining the pride when some of them win a medal - the places must erupt with celebrations.

Jazz,
~~Always thinking.

VioletSky,
~~Oh they do! I get excited when a country gets a first medal in a sport.

India used to dominate field hockey but claimed their decline is due to the use of artificial turf in international matches. Don't know but they would do well if cricket was an Olympic sport.
