“We will compete in many individual events this time. They (Gowda, Poonia and Gurmeet) all have attained ‘A’ standards, which is a positive sign. It is impossible to win a gold, but we may hope for a medal,” AFI Secretary General, CK Valson told PTI yesterday.
Valson though would be happy if Indian manage a top eight finish in the 10 events they are participating. “We are hoping a medal, but it depends on how they perform on that day. But realistically, we would be satisfied if most of our athletes come in first eight, that will be a morale-booster,” Valson said.
