Considering the talent and potential India possesses, it always baffles one as to why the country has failed to impress at the Olympics time and again. While many attribute it to the lack of proper infrastructure, the others paint in on the absence of support from the government.

Over the years, India has won a meagre of 28 medals at the Olympics. Not quite impressive for a country that has regularly participated in the quadrennial event starting from the 1920 Antwerp Games.

In which sports have those 28 medals come in? India has won medals in just eight sports.
