In the last 24 Olympic Games that India have participated so far since 1900, only 28 medals have been won by the country which now has a population of more than 1.3 billion. Of these, nine were gold, six silver and 11 bronze medals.
In the 2016 Rio Olympics, India managed to win two medals — silver by shuttler P.V. Sindhu and bronze by wrestler Sakshi Malik.
However, despite our poor performance in the last edition of the prestigious quadrennial event, one can hope that India will be able to win a good number of medals at the 2020 Olympic Games slated to be held in Tokyo, Japan.
