Leaving on a prayer

August 3, 2016 00:45 am

If your dream is to be a successful Olympian, South Asia would be among the worst places on the planet to be born into. The eight SAARC member countries, the home to one in five people on earth, didn’t win a single gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics. With the exception of India (two bronze, four silver) and Afghanistan (one bronze), the six other countries did not win a medal of any kind. Historically, too, the Olympic record of every SAARC country has been woeful. This is one way to make sense of Nepal’s habitual under-achievement in Olympics.
