Indian track and field is still seeking its Anju Bobby George moment. London 2012 had a few highs: national records for the walkers KT Irfan (20km, 10th finish) and Basanta Bahadur Rana (50km, 36th finish), and final spots for throwers Vikas Gowda and Krishna Poonia.Gowda has qualified for Rio but been missing all season, and Poonia has been replaced by Seema (Antil) Poonia, a former junior world discus champion.Any improvement from London 2012 will be enormous.
