Position 50 what does it mean?

India's position in the medal tally at Beijing was 50. Above us were such countries like Zimbabwe [1G, 3S] [Inflation 11 million]; But who were below us? I took a look, among others:
Iran [1G1S]
Sweden [4S1B]
Ireland [1S2B]
South Africa [1S]
Singapore [1S]
Taiwan [4B]
Egypt [1B]
Israel [1B]

We should take Beijing 2008 as a starting point and not look back!

I was surprised by South Africa the most because they seem to be so good is sports in general - cricket, rugby, soccer, hockey...

Today's paper had what it took China to get those golds. If you ask me it was too expensive.

I mean today's Week mag says half of Indians don't have toilets! So to we go for more gold or do we go for more toilets! Question to ask;-)

I think we did a great job in this olympics. If we can really work from here, we can also come to a better position in next olympics. :)

What we noticed was that in the rowing event our boys while not making it to the finals broke the national record. They should keep doing that, and for that our sports facilities should be made good.

Wait, am going to refer to your post on a post (obviously a my-brother anecdote) that I want to make.
