@ Darko Not sure what makes you to think Discus Throw, Hammer Throw , Shot Put, Jumps (High jump, Long jump & Triple Jump) and Javelin Throw are easy to get Olympic medals if we set focus & effort.Prior to this Neeraj Chopra Olympic Gold, baring 1 Bronze medal in Long Jump, we haven't won any other medals in these events even in World Championships.In all these events, all Continents sent their strong contingent : America ( North, Central & South), European & Caribbean, Asian & African and Oceania nations. Most of these nations won medals in these events.Regarding Poland gold in Hammer throw. They are always good in Hammer throw and they won couple of Golds in previous events + good number of medals in this event.Maybe I feel you might be referring below par performance of USA athletes in Javelin Throw. Their might be 3 reasons1. They are not good in Javelin Throw2. USA Athletic federation might not have shown interest as it will fetch only 2 Golds3. Not enough interest from Athletes
Even though, there is lot of competition in Wrestling & Shooting, we shouldn't lose our focus in these events as shooting has 15 Gold events & Wresting has 18 Gold events (including Greco-Roman).I also feel we should put some more focus in Archery (5 Gold events) , Badminton (5 Gold events) , Boxing (13)& Weight-lifting (14) . It's a shame that we never won an Archery Olympic medal. Not just Deepika Kumari, prior to her, we had many other top Archers in both Men's & Women's category, but never won a medal. IOC & AA need to do lot of introspection. Karate is just for this Tokyo Olympics. Unless we have talent, there is no point in investing in Karate. As Darko said, we can invest in Judo ( 15 events) along with Taekwondo (8 Gold)
England is such a wily and cunning country. Just look at their Golds. Majority come from niche events - Rowing/Sailing, Diving, Equestrian, Cycling, BMX (???). We should follow their track & try to steal from them. Gymnastics is also a category where there are lots of events and also a hunting ground of < 5 Gold countries. Israel stole a Jew from Ukraine and opened their Gold in this category.
