India has sent its 'best-ever' contingent for the Athens Olympics.

The Indians managed only one bronze medal at Sydney in 2000, and at the Atlanta Games in 1996.

Tennis ace Leander Paes won bronze in Atlanta while weightlifter Karnam Malleshwari underlined her credentials Down Under with a bronze.

India has an outside chance of finishing on the podium in five events -- athletics, hockey, tennis, shooting and weightlifting.

If a new study by economists at PricewaterhouseCoopers is to be believed, India could end up winning as many as 10 medals at Athens.

How many medals do you think India will win at the Athens Olympics?
