Rio 2016 Olympics: India still has a lot of medal hopes.

Before the Indian contingent departed for the Rio 2016 Olympics, a lot of debate took place on where India could finish in the medals tally. There were questions asked about the number of medals it can bring.

Will they match their count from the London Olympics four years ago? Or will India see a dip in the medal count? The way India officials promised a 10-plus medal count raised hopes of fans back home. Even players promised a good show.

But even after three days of the Rio Games, India is yet to open their medal account and hopes of matching the medal count from London look bleak. But this should not ring alarm bells for India or its fans.

India was hoping that on Day 3, when two of it’s most experienced shooters, Abhinav Bindra and Gagan Narang come out for their competition, they return with medals and open India’s account at the Games. But it was not to be as both shooters failed to finish in the top three spots of the men’s 10m air rifle event.

There are still a lot of events in which India can expect to win. Heena Sidhu will be playing her 10m air pistol event on Tuesday while the boxing, wrestling and badminton events are yet to begin. Even Jitu Rai will take aim in the his main 50m air pistol event and is medal hope.
