Indian team for Athens

While on the subject of Olympics, here is a list of the 78-member strong (or weak) team representing India at the Athens’2004 Olympics – Indian team for Athens
Some interesting points here. We are participating in 14 events with an “outside” chance of winning medals in 5. By today, the 4th day, 2 of these hopes are already wiped out 😦
Anyway, perhaps our past performance in “group” games could be attributed to the social dynamic we have in India where the group/society always ascends over the individual. Let us hope we get something out of hockey and most importantly the hockey people get their well-deserved attention in India. It is a beautiful game. Fast, short and requiring talent. Isn’t “kabaddi” an Olympic sport? I thought so but recently we are being beat by many others in this as well which is only fair since I do not understand why a sport that was born in some country should imply that that country should be the best in that game and win medals? Anyway, enough of my critiscisms on Olympics and India. Let me enjoy the games with no bias. Go India and _Great_ Britain (particularly Scottish sportspeople)…
