India has never been as buoyant as this before an Olympics. From July 23, India’s finest will compete against the world’s best in the backdrop of a futuristic Tokyo—a metropolis trying to come to terms with humanity’s post-apocalyptic reality. The fear is palpable, for our best-laid plans have been upended by a raving lunatic of a pandemic that has brought the heightened emotions of a manga world into our lives. Only sports can defy it. Not to forget the motto: Citius, Altius, Fortius! Contingents from around the world will congregate in Tokyo; not all of them will win medals, but a majority of them have won laurels for their sacrifices and tireless pursuit of excellence. India, the world’s second-most populous country, will send over 100 athletes. Some are serious medal contenders and will script her or his story in an emp­hatic manner, on a podium; others shall keep the Olympics spirit alive. Here’s a look at ten medal contenders and their corresponding events. Sleeplessly and hopefully, we shall follow them.
