Abstract

Why winning a gold medal in sports is not everything we make it out to be.

Outline

With the Asiad’s going so well, it’s a proud moment for India.
I’m an Asian medal winning kayaker who’s seen the other side of India’s sportsmen.
The corruption and nepotism that keeps the great from rising. The next gold medalist is out there waiting to be discovered, but he can’t come out till we put a price to the medal. The right price.
