Unlike Cricket, soccer and hockey are sports where physique matters quite a bit. Indian players are on average 6 to 9 inches shorter than Aussies, Dutch, etc and have no chance of winning against them. Indian team today is just as good as the ones that won the gold medal, but no one else played the game then seriously. I could win the 100m, 200m 400m at Olympics as well, if no one else competes.

Ask film producers to make more `Chak De India` type movies. At least we can see India winning in `reel` life.
