Our country’s athletes have gained a great deal of respect after the Tokyo Olympics 2020. All of the hard work, preparation, blood and sweat they gave to their respective sports have paid off. India got its first gold medal in Athletics, 2 silver medals and 4 bronze medals. All of the winners got government incentives as well as presents from certain brands. But what about those who were only a whisker away from a medal?
