London Olympics - India's Medals and Disappointments

The biggest sporting event, London Olympics 2012 has ended. All the players have returned to their respective nations, some with medals, some with records, some with controversies and others empty handed. As far as India is concerned, it was country's best performance,  83-member strong Indian Contingent returned with 6 medals, 2 Silver and 4 Bronze. Though there is an increase in the medal count, some players with high expectations have only succeeded in disappointing us.

The medal winners at the London Olympics are
1. Bronze - Gagan Narang - Shooting
2. Bronze - Saina Nehwal - Badminton
3. Silver - Vijay Kumar - Shooting
4. Bronze - Mary Kom - Boxing
5. Bronze - Yogeshwar Dutt - Wrestling - 60kg
6. Silver - Sushill Kumar - Wrestling - 66kg

And here are some of the players who failed to live upto the country's expectations.
Vijender Singh, a big medal prospect, came close but couldn't succeed. Deepika Kumari and the archery team made a quite exit after a poor performance. Abhinav Bindra, the Beijing Olympics Gold medal winner couldn't put up a performance worth qualifying for the finals. The selection of the teams created more news than the performance for the tennis team which got crashed out. The worst play was put up by the Hockey team, without winning a single game.
