they have 1.2 billion people, yet only won 6 medals (no golds)this past olympics, and usually can't even qualify for the world cup in soccer.

any theories?

evolution...

twitch muscles no good...


athletes from africa are top marathon'rs because their ancestors would run around animals for over 20 hours until the animal died of exhaustion. this was before the bow and arrow.

indians are good at engineering and charming snakes. some have developed immunity from practically any snakebite.

It's all about the emphasis including investing money in training. UK did won 18 more medals in London than they did in Bejing.

China won 37 more medals in Bejing than they did in 2004.

It's all about training and that means money.

... Invest in those sports, they probably have weak infrastructure and funding.

They had a female tennis player who has high up for a bit ( something Mirza ) she did her training in the UK cause her parents were rich. Met her at a fund raiser in toronto, pretty cute gal.

End of day country needs to Invest to win. There was an article on the bbc saying khazakstan is trying to show itself as a real emerging country and has now invested in sports, and won a bunch of medals this year.

Lots of lame replies in this thread.

They dont find value in investing heavy for the Olympics, but the sports they do care about they have some great athletes.

half the population live in abject poverty, there is no infra structure to speak of in the whole country and any money they have goes to other "priorities". But cricket is the the only sport they play and thats not in the olympics

This is true.

Emphasis is not on sports.

Studies are number one.

They dont give a garbage because it ultimately friggin stupid and a waste of time. They go to have a presence at the Olympics simply because it would look bad if they didnt. They dont go balls to the wall like we do.....and then bankrupt our atheletes and tax them for winning......

They focus on education, work and family...whats wrong with them!!!?? They could be baton twirling or synchronized swimming or playing handball.....
