    This is the major mistake we all Indians do that to get overly excited and hyped just for participating in such events and not concentrating on winning. You are so excited as if they won some medals, just participating is not an achievement which anyone can do but winning does matter. So, we all indians should not hype everything like our cricketers do and spoil it. We will see if they win any medal, at least the bronze.

    we should not be satisfied with it, do more to win more.
