Merely wanting them to bring home gold from the Olympics is unfair unless we support them and their games right from the start. We must encourage them, motivate them, give them the facilities to train and more importantly watch them as they play. That way, in future, we can hope to see more promising women take up sports as a career and not leave it half way.

It's time that the elephants in the room are brought out instead of shoving them under the carpet.
