        There is a lot of talent in our country but there’s no equal facility for everyone.The money our government distributes after winning the medal they should use it before this type of event.

        Yeaah u r absolutely right that’s main thing,they sleep till olympics then support athletes who wins medal they give them lot of money and they forget other athletes,they can use that money for preparation,other countries do that thatswhy they r winning so many medals,i think they need to think where we can win medals in which event we have chance to win they should prepare for that.
