With the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games approaching fast, we wanted to see who we can root for from India.

Well, while Akshay Kumar is the Indian Ambassador for the games and participating in the torch relay on Dec 17th in Ontario, there’s only 1, yes, just 1 Indian participating in the Olympics!

Shiva Keshavan, who received a life-time railroad pass from India after placing 25th in Torino (best ever result for India in the Winter Olympics), is competing in luge! (NBCOlympics.com)  It’s his 4th Olympics and we wish him the best of luck!

With over 1 billion Indians, is there not enough interest in Winter sports? It’s not like the Himalaya’s are lacking ski resorts to practice at!

CORRECTION here.
