1) First you should have long term plan,instead of short term plan like in india olympic preparation start 6 month before olympic.
2) In India sports means getting government job,this system change,we have to thing it in high level.
3) We can seek help from Russia,China to train our players in long term.
4) Regularly we have conduct world class competition,our player will get the confidence.
5) In India we should create more Play Grounds.(Prime locality Real Estate Giants constructing the Flats with help of Government Officials).
6)We need more sponsorship for all the games.

1. Create a Sporting attitude among masses (for athletics more focus should be given to Tribal people)
2. There should be a system (like sports clubs for cricket) which nurtures talent from every corner and make them competitive & lay long-term strategy
3. Needs funding & infrastructure
4. Bring well-known coaches from all parts of globe.
5. Give some financial security to sports persons

India also can improve in Olympic but for that we must follow the Chinese way of Olympism. We have start form ground zero. Dept. of Education & Sports; Govt. of India should work togeather and introduce a new subject i.e. "lympic" right from primary education.

I am very much inspired by Beijing Olympic and start educating myself about Olympic from I.O.C. and beijing Olympic websites, so that I can share my views with friends and society.

The problem with sports and programs on the various games is, the press tends to blame it on the authorities too much, although US and China have an excellent sports programs the general public also tends to get involved with the success of the games. IT IS A TWO WAY STREET -----------

The US rowing teams for example were a self motivated bunch, who trained as
a team without much help from the respective goverments. What we need is an
exposure to various unconventional sports such as rowing, fencing, sync swimming, beach volleyball and so on. There are no goverment programs for such
events.

The indepth discussion on sports and performance is beyond the scope of this
but just to mention them, that success in sports and performance is an integration
of know-how in 5 main areas.

1. Bio-mechanics and technique analysis
2. Body types: Endo morph, ecto morph and mesomorphs
3. Fitness: Strength, flexibility and stamina
4. Diet and sports nutrition
5. Temperament and menta ...more

Seeing this Olympic Games, I feel we are still on the STONE AGE. Compared to our neighbour country and other smallest countries, we are nowhere in the show. Our people have not time to think about growth of our own people and the country. Our leaders are only try to safeguard their own safety and security (chairs) even on the price of others blood or on the price of the country. Let us try to learn from atleast others even at this late hours.

We need sincere persons at District Sports level who care for sports and not personal relations / interests. SO many individuals drop out because of lack of encouragement at school level. These officials should be very impartial in their approach in their minds rather than proving how they are impartial on paper. That becomes very controversial.
Training programmes should be scientific with some one sincerely following up needs of the sportspersons rather than those of officials.
We have heard many stories of selected athletes / teams dumped in common rooms with no amenities while officials stayed in 5 stars.
I read an article in Sakal while ago that selected Pune University team did not participate in Inter-University Tennis games because of bungling of officials. This will certainly discourage participation itself.
Lets hope for some dedication from officials and authorities ... We have talent and can't see why we cannot do better
