India in Rio Olympics 2016


India competed at the 2016 summer olympics in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, from 5th to 21st august 2016. Indian athletes have appeared in every edition of the summer olympics since 1920, they had their official debut at the summer Olympics in Paris. The Indian Olympic Association sent the nation’s  largest ever representatives in summer Olympic history.
Out of a 119 strong people sharing a common feature, India got only a silver and a bronze, and Dipa Karmakar was outstanding in gymnastics. 
– P V Sindhu secured a silver medal after losing to Carolina Marin in the women’s singles final.
– Saina Nehwal failed to progress beyond the league stage in women’s singles.
– Sakshi Malik won bronze in women’s 58kg freestyle.
– Dipa Karmakar finished fourth in Vaults final.
The great difference between male and female representatives has evened out a little compared to what it was four years ago.  
The return of the Indian women’s hockey team to the oylmpics after 36 years is a moving tale.
Over 100 Indian athletes competed at the Rio Games.
There has been a sense of disappointment over the bad performance of Indian athletes, but it seems our politicians and the others in the Indian representatives who traveled all the way to Rio to motivate the players are grabbing more look. It began with Sorts minister Vijay Goel getting scold by the Olympic organisers for the aggressive and rude behavior. 
The government and authorities have a lot to learn from this years’s experiences and it wouldn’t be wrong to reform the entire structure . Only then, would probably India be able to hope for a better performance at the top sports stage in the world.
