Olympic Individual medal (in British India) - Silver by Norman Pritchard for 200 metres races at the 1900 Summer Olympics, Paris. (This is disputed however. The IOC claims he participated for India. The IAAF records him as participant for Great Britain.)
However the Olympic Individual medal - A Bronze by K. D. Jadhav for wrestling at the 1952 Summer Olympics Helsinki.
