How winning seven medals in Olympics is a positive sign for Indian sports in general?

The recently concluded Tokyo 2020 is the most successful campaign for Indian contingents so far who managed to win 7 medals in the marquee event which included 1 gold, 2 silver, and 4 bronze medal respectively.

Gold was bagged by Javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra followed by Silver by Saikom Mirabai Chanu in Weightlifting and Ravi Kumar Dahiya in Wrestling.

The Bronze medalist tally includes wrestler Bajrang Punia, Boxer Lovlina Borgohain, Badminton star PV Sindhu and the Indian Men’s Hockey team under the leadership of Manpreet Singh.

India could have easily surpassed 7 medal tally this year as several players like Deepak Punia and Aditi Ashok finished at fourth position and Indian women’s hockey team who missed the Bronze medal by giving tough fight to the Great Britain team.

If those medals have been counted we could have easily touched 10 medals but India winning seven medals in Olympics is not just the most successful one but it is a good sign for Indian sports in general where the only sport which is given much importance is Cricket.
