Topic of the Essay: Fifty Gold in Olympics: Can this be a reality for India?
India is world’s second-largest populated country and ninth largest economy; but in Olympics it performs astonishingly poor. It is not true that Indians are poor athletes, as we are excellent in some sports like Cricket and Hockey and performs well in commonwealth games too.
So how to explain the Olympic medal deficiency? Probably the most common theory is that both India as a country and Indians as individuals just have other priorities. Second is the poor infrastructure and governance. Better infrastructure in rich countries enable them to perform well. And, though India has an enormous population its “effectively participating population” are low. Reasons for the same are poor childhood health, lack of awareness, lack of transportation etc.
Role of governments in fostering national prestige is also important here. Cuba, North Korea, China today and soviet union in the past invest heavily in finding and fostering competitive athletes. The India government, should make a long term plan to galvanize national athletic talent. Focus should be on school level.
Still, income and government cannot explain India’s under-performance. India has to identify an Olympic event where its people might exceptionally excel. If we work in synergy according to long term plan it would be possible that India wins more Gold medals.
