India's performance in Beijing Olympic

This is just a thought that come to my mind upon reading some articles about prediction of China's performance in this Olympic. Cos, those articles say that the number of medals that China will win this time will be even more than those by the U.S. Certainly, the first reason is about home court advantage. That's something that no need to be disputed. However, other reasons have also been raised, most of them are related to population and economy. Namely, when you have large pool of population, probability wise, there should be more natural gifted athletes. Also, as China's economy is growth so fast, most resources can be inserted into sports trainings, etc. So, the performance should be inproved, and so on.

Well, I don't know if that is really true or not, we won't find out whether China will perform as good as those predictions. Even if those predictions come true, I would still very much doubt of those explanations of economy and population. Cos, as the subject suggests, then India should do pretty good as well. On the contrary, so far what we heard about Indian athletes are still about hockey, hockey and hockey. That is something make say: hmmm........!
