India will be represented in 13 out of the 26 sports at the Olympics. 58 men and 23 women have booked their Olympic berths.
The Beijing number came down drastically because the Indian hockey team failed to qualify. This time around the eight times Olympic champions are through and a 16-member squad has been named.
The expectations will be high from the 11 shooters, five wrestlers and eight boxers. Rifle shooter Abhinav Bindra, who won India's first individual gold medal in Beijing, will be looking for an encore. Another rifle shooter Gagan Narang and shot-gun exponent Ronjan Singh Sodhi are also potential medal prospects.
