Haryana and commonwealth gamesAt Delhi Commonwealth 2010 — after Australia, England, Canada and India-minus-Haryana. 15 of India's 38 gold at the Commonwealth Games — nearly 40 per cent of the country's best-ever haul — have been won by athletes from Haryana.It has been proved by Haryana that no other state lead us. We are the best.
For perspective, Haryana has 2 per cent of the country's population and occupies 1.37 per cent of its land area.
At the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth , Haryana's contribution to the national tally had been only 1 gold, 3 silver and a bronze.
What has allowed Haryana to punch so much above its weight is a comprehensive, result-oriented sports policy in which the government has invested thought, time and funds. Every student is encouraged to play at least one sport at school, and every sportsperson who wins a a national or international championship gets an automatic cash reward and a government job.
