Hey, I predicted exactly this yesterday when I said that the boxer might not have time to feel pressure, the bridge guys might not know that anybody even knows of them to feel pressure, and that the squash people would assume all of India's future to be on their shoulders and choke... So we got two golds and a silver. Pretty much as expected.

Thats it then.
Overall amazing results for our players.
Athletics and Shooting was superb.
Overall satisfactory result from wrestling.
TT was the surprise package of all, dint expect medals from them.
And some good performances from Sailing, Wushu, Bridge, Kurash.
Amit in Boxing and Ankita Raina from Tennis were only note worthy performance in their sports.
Amit for me was the MVP from indian contingent.

Special mention to Mirza in Equestrian and the compound Archery team, superb display, perhaps a bit unlucky to miss the Gold.

Squash and Recurve archers were below par, also golf and boxing barring Amit.

Biggest disappoitment was the all the team events,
Kabaddi and Hockey will remain a dark spot for India at these games.

Missed Mirabai, fit Dipa and Mary Kom.

Really happy how the NRAI and AFI is producing world class players for India, other federation needs to do some catch up.

The good thing for Indian sports in the number for youngsters coming across all the sports.

Focus shifts to the Shooting world champion, IAAF Continental Cup and the Youth Olympics later this year.

No way. Awaiting another horror show from the hockey and cricket guys.

Squash, archery and hockey are just too 'stubborn' to improve their results.

Are we going to end up at 68 or 69 (depending on hockey) medals?

Honestly speaking, may sound rude but now I would the Men's Hockey team finished 4th than win any medal and get all those prize money.
