Good Question. Sadly, in our country sports persons are given very little recognition even though they work really hard in the respective fields.

There are many but people don't know about them. Anyway, I think calling Amitabh was government's way of getting people interested in Olympics. Because (A) In India a movie star is considered as national pride rather than people who actually try to raise our country's status in the world; and (B) politicians are just jerks. I was so angry to see how they treated sportsperson. In other countries they wouldn't have gotten away with it.
