Here’s everything India is searching about Rio Olympics 2016, according to Google




The Rio Olympics are currently underway and India for the first time has sent its largest ever contingent of 119 athletes.

Granted none of our athletes have yet managed to bring home a medal, but they have given brilliant performances no less.

From Abhinav Bindra missing the bronze by a whisker, Lalita Babar finishing 10th in the steeplechase final- which by the way, is India’s best performance till date in athletics to Dipa Karmakar risking her life and attempting the much feared ‘Produnova’ and winning accolades all over for her close finish- these athletes have given it their all. They’ve fought against all odds, put up with poor facilities in the hope of representing their country and showcasing their talent to the world.

Indians, on their part have been repaid the hard work and determination of our athletes by supporting them wholeheartedly.
