  • 11. COMPARING CHINA AND INDIA IN THE OLYMPICS GAMES • China has become an Olympic powerhouse while India has underperformed. • From 1952 to 2012, China won 201 gold medals, while India won only five. • The Chinese economic development model has focused on investment in infrastructure; things like massive airports, high-speed rail, hundreds of dams, stadiums, world-class swimming pools, and high-
  • 12. The Effort That Goes In For An Olympic Medal In China Is Awesome…! • 5-6 year old kids are made to stretch their legs, swinging on the beams, hanging from pairs of rings, bounding across floor mats during the physically strenuous training sessions. • Most of the children are orphans i.e., they go in search of orphans and bring them to their training centres and fine tune them.
  • 13. • The goal for each boy or girl is to out beat USA and to see their country on top of the medals table. • There are reports that suggest that the trainers have no mercy on kids, as they are made to train hard • Thus we can say that in the coming years China can totally out beat USA. • It looks gloom for the Indian’s as it has to think all over again and give a good amount of share in its GDP for the SPORTS.
  • 14. CONCLUSION: •The first and the foremost thing that India should do to improve in OLYMPICS is to develop its infrastructure and build as many stadia it can. •For this to happen it should give a fat share of its GDP towards SPORTS. •It should start right away so that 20-30years down the line we can see our country as one of the dominant performers in OLYMPICS.
