With just two to go for the start of the mega sporting event Olympics to start, I thought of writing something about it. This time, 81 Indian contingents (58 men and 23 women) are participating in 54 different events in this tournament.

Well India would be hoping to win a medal in every event they participate, but definitely the winners of last time would want to repeat their performance for sure. Along with Abhinav Bindra, Vijender Sing, and Sushil Kumar (last times medallions), I believe Gangan Narang, Rojon Sodhi are also big contenders of winning a medal (in Shooting). Though the other representatives do not seem to hope to force a very huge challenge, but surely every Indian would want them to win. And yes, probably the biggest hope of a medal win this time Saina Nehwal would be want to convert. Also, another big hope is Mary Kom, who would want to win an Olympic gold. Well to be honest Indian hockey team does not promise a podium finish but surely there are still a lot of hopes that Indian team can do it.

And yes how can one forget all the controversy for the men’s doubles team in tennis. Yes Mahesh Bhupati and Leander Paes who have been the biggest hope for a medal for the last two events but have unfortunately failed, will probably give it a last attempt this time with different partners. Hope they will be able to win a medal this time, and maybe two as well.

Last time India won 3 medals in the games (the best ever at Olympics), India would be wanting to achieve that number again this time around. I hope they can double the number to achieve 6 this time or at least 5 medals, and make this event the most memorable.

With this I would like to wish all the Indian contingents all the best for their events at Olympics, hope they can make the country proud.
