This Olympic is going to be a dream for India, although we have seen some sad moments like thrash out of India’s leading boxer Vijender Singh and denial of Mary Kom sent India to sadness but just before we start to regret those incidents India already set its new Benchmark in Olympics by total number of qualifying athletes reaching over 100 for the first time.
It was a field day for Indian athletes as sprinters Srabani Nanda (200m), Mohammad Anas (400m) and long jumper Ankit Sharma secured their qualification for Rio Olympics as the number of Indian athletes going to Rio crossed 100 for the first ever time.
