Olympic Sports City

India, being the world’s second most populous nation, holds the worst Olympic record in terms of medals per head. Its best haul, six medals during the 2012 London Olympics, translated into only one medal per 200 million people.

The nation’s newly elected political party, seeking to respond to renewed cries for Olympic glory, while still upholding its promises of economic liberalization, has sought to increased foreign direct investment in the sports industry. New laws are passed to create free-trade sports zones around the country, where private developers and investors enjoy tax benefits, exempted regulations, and suspended labor laws in favor of accelerated sporting progress.
