Did India under-perform at the Olympics? | The Hindu Parley podcast

The Tokyo Olympics is over and the euphoria generated by India’s best haul of seven medals at the Games — a gold, two silver and four bronze — is beginning to fade away. It is now time to discus whether India could have done better. Before the country’s largest-ever contingent of 127 athletes left for Tokyo, there were talks of a double-digit medal tally. That didn’t happen and India’s performance placed it 48th among 93 medal-winning nations.

Here we discuss whether India under-performed at Tokyo?.

Guests: Ronjan Sodhi , a double-trap shooter, is a two-time world champion and recipient of the Major Dhyan Chand Khel Ratna Award; Mervyn Fernandis was a member of the 1980 Moscow Olympics Indian hockey team which won a gold

Host:R akesh Rao
