If corruption comes down in India, we can expect International level grounds, athletes, facilities in India soon.

Hope Indians will perform well compared to previous Olympics, by winning more medals. Thanks to government of India along with many private companies who is supporting a lot to sports in recent times
.

All the best to Indian Athletes. Hope you will give the very best, even in case if you miss a chance to win medal…

Let the authorities provide best facilities first, then build the expectations for medals...

Unless you close-down BCCI, you can't expect promotion of any other sports, Cricket is like a monster in India eating away all the sports.

If you ask a teenager, National game/sport, he will answer Cricket only. Who Knows Hockey?

Nive : I think India is sending abroad few athletes for coaching, if not facilities(within India) along with funds...

Indu : Indu, do you think BCCI will be closed !?, Its high time Indian govt should start motivating and support other sports ..
