The Indians are eyeing their first ever double-digit medal haul riding on the sheer number of qualifiers this time, standing at 118 now after sprinter Dharambir Singh and shot-putter Inderjeet Singh were told to stay back after being caught in the dope net.
Not to forget, the drama that chased wrestler Narsingh Yadav ever since he was selected ahead of double Olympic-medallist Sushil Kumar. Narsingh was caught in the dope storm as well but managed to clear his name after convincing NADA that he was victim of conspiracy and sabotage.

(‘India will win only 2 medals’) On the first day of competitions on Saturday, India can eye a medal from Jitu Rai, the pint-sized star whose pistol has been shooting medals at almost every event he has participated in.

2The world’s two largest economies, the United States 2016 Rio and China 2016 Rio , will again win most gold medals at the Olympics and Britain will push Russia into third place in the overall standings, Goldman Sachs predicted in the survey released on thursday.
American athletes will come away with 45 gold medals from the Rio de Janeiro Games which start on Friday, one less that they got in London four years ago, while China will win 36, two fewer than in 2012, according to the investment bank’s economists.
Beyond athletic performance, economic success enhances the chances of Rio Olympic glory2016, according to Goldman Sachs, because “a country is more likely to produce world-class athletes in a world-class environment”.

The Goldman Sachs’ medal tally prediction gives India two medals more than their tally in the last Olympics in London. The Sports Authority of India, on the other hand, have a target of 10 medals for the 117 athletes set to participate in Rio.
Britain, which hosted the Games four years ago, will win 23 gold medals, six less than in 2012. But in the overall count, it will take home 59 medals, one more than Russia, the survey said.
The Russian team, hit by doping bans, will collect 14 golds, 12 fewer than the recently revised total of their London haul four years ago, Goldman Sachs predicted.
Host country Brazil has long been an Olympics under-achiever considering its population of 200 million people, the world’s fifth largest, and its position as the world’s seventh-largest economy, according to the International Monetary Fund.
Goldman Sachs expects Brazil to miss its goal of breaking into the 10 top of total medal winners despite a big increase in funding ahead of the Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Brazil is expected to tie with Jamaica, the world’s 131st-largest economy, in the gold medal count. In the overall standings, Goldman Sachs predicts Brazil to come 11th with 22 medals, just ahead of Ukraine, the 48th largest economy and a nation of 44 million people, less than a quarter of Brazil’s population.
Brazil’s per-capita gross domestic product is also more than double Ukraine’s.
