In this episode of Game Time, Daksh and Gaurav are joined by Indian Express’ Olympic correspondent, Mihir Vasavda as they discuss talk how India is expected to perform in the Olympics next year, which athletes have a chance of winning a medal and why Indian participants seem to get performance anxiety during the actual event.
