exceeded ? implicitly understood by whom ? not anyone who tracks Indian sports, that's for sure.
I am happy that we went over our beijing performance but this was lower than what we realistically expected from the contingent. only in wrestling have we exceeded expectations, where both our medal contenders achieved a podium finish.
what we expected and what we got :
shooting 3 (2)
boxing 3 (1)
archery 1 (0)
wrestling 1 (2)
Anything can be sacrificed for truth,
nothing is too valuable to sacrifice truth instead.
