Not much time is left for the Olympics to be held in Tokyo this year. The Olympic Games will start in Japan in July. Indian players are constantly trying to qualify for the Olympics and after that go to Tokyo and make India proud in the country and all over the world. However, the road for Indian players in the Olympics has never been easy. There are very few players who have won medals for India in the Olympics. Now the hopes have been raised again. The Olympics was to be held last year i.e. in 2020, but it was postponed for a year due to the corona virus epidemic all over the world. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi first talked about the Olympics in his Mann Ki Baat today and he also announced a quiz for it.
In the history of Olympics, India has won 28 medals till now. This includes nine gold, seven silver and 12 bronze medals. India has won the least medals in athletics in the Olympics. There are many athletics players, who tried to bring glory to the country in the Olympics, but they could not succeed in it. It is another matter that leaving behind the previous performance, the players are preparing to enter the field with new enthusiasm and passion this time. Many players have even qualified for the Olympics, while many players are engaged in this effort.
The last Olympics were held in Rio, Brazil, when India won a silver and a bronze medal. That is, he got only two medals. The special thing is that India has not won any gold since the year 2008. It has to be seen whether this time any Indian can target his gold medal or not. India has won the most medals in hockey in the Olympic history so far. India has won 11 medals in hockey, which is the most. In hockey, India has won eight gold, one silver and one bronze medals. This was the time of Major Dhyan Chand. On whose birthday, Sports Day is also celebrated in India. Apart from this, India has won four medals in shooting, two medals in athletics, five medals in wrestling, two medals in boxing, one medal in tennis and one medal in weightlifting.
