As the London Olympics are in progress, I was searching for Pakistan record at the Olympics. It was very disappointing to see that a country of 180 million people has only won 10 medals till now, three gold medals and silver medals each whereas four bronze medals in Olympics.
All three of the gold medals, and 8 of the 10 total medals, were won by field hockey team. Pakistan has also won a bronze medal in wrestling (1960) and boxing (1988)
There are 326 individuals athletes who have won three or more than three gold medals in Olympics but Pakistan has only won three gold medals in 16 Olympics.
The record shows that concerned authorities in Pakistan need to pay attention at this field which is also very good for people as it engages people in healthy activity.
