I was of the impression that we would've had one up by now, so took the liberty to set this up. As the Olympics Open Threads available are of Football only and people here might wish to talk about other sports as well, here is this thread at your service.
As 150 words are required to publish it, allow me to ramble a bit. I shall now describe my country's contingent, the Indian one it is, in the hope that we do win 5 golds at least, which would be unprecedented.
Here are our our best bets for a gold-
- Saina Nehwal (badminton)
- Leander Paes and Sania Mirza (tennis)
- Ronjan Sodhi, Abhinav Bindra and Gagan Narang (shooting)
- Vijender Singh (boxing)
- Sushil Kumar (wrestling)
- MC Mary Kom (boxing)
- Deepika Kumari (archery)
- Swaran Singh (Single Scull), Manjeet Singh and Sandeep Kumar (Double Scull) [Rowing]
Now that my rambles are over, I invite y'all to share your views, best hopes of individuals and nations and whatever you wish related to the Olympics.
