The best Olympics for India

The Olympics is over and now the hysteria of this mega sporting event will also subside for next four years till London 2012. Apart from the expected rise of the China to top of the tally with 51 gold medal, another major event was India's tally of 1 gold and 2 bronze (though it looks miniscule, but for the first time India has won 3 medals in Olympics and a gold after 28 years). 

I will list down some statistics about India's performance in the last few years at other major sporting events

Event Year Gold Silver Bronze Total Overall Rank
Olympics 2008 1 0 2 3 50
Asian Games 2006 10 17 26 53 8
Commonwealth Games 2006 22 17 11 50 4
SAF Games 2006 103 69 47 234 1

Let us see how India performs at the 2010 Commonwealth Games to be held in Delhi.
