India's best ever Olympics

One bronze medal today. This one in the 66kg freestyle wrestling category by Sushil Kumar. A medal is assured in the 75kg boxing division, thanks to Vijender Kumar's entry into the semi-finals. This medal tally (in addition to Abhinav Bindra's gold) is India's best ever. Not good enough for a large population and huge economy like ours. But it is a start and this may just be the impetus Indian sports needs to start climbing the medal board from 2012.
