This is the first time ever that the country has sent a huge Olympic contingent. The number of athletes who are a part of this Olympics are 118. London 2012 Olympics saw 83 athletes participating in the competition from the nation. It is certainly the most-awaited Summer Games ever for India. There are plenty of reasons for that. For first time ever, the country can actually expect good performances for possible podium finishes in various contingents.
