It's too much but it's not a bad thing and I think some small rich countries did that before.
Better than naturalizing athletes to go for gold :tape:

Um, Azerbaijan have three Bulgarians competing for them in Weightlifting - Boyanka Kostova, Valentin Hristov and Velichko Cholakov.

Maybe you could do a little research before saying that? :shrug:

They have a decent chance for winning medals in Weightlifting :shrug:

If only one of them wins gold thats 640k € . And USA is giving 20k.

That means 32 USA Golds = 1 Azeri Gold ;)

Are they Azeri of Bulgarian background or just recently changed the nationality?

I think stupid Indians think if they dominate the world of sports they will rule this world.

India cannot compete internationally in terms of technology. So they give high importance to less known events such as sports, for international reputation.

Now Afghanistan is more famous than India or China or African countries after 9/11 attacks.

When Osama was killed in year 2011, everybody was watching "Osama's death news" and they forgot sports.

Oh god, only if you knew. Most Indians actively look down upon sports as a career. And honestly Indians are quite bad at sports and have no hopes or ambition for world domination in sports. But yes the sponsors have enough money to throw around given that India will win 5 odd medals at most.

If India wins 5 or 10 gold medals then all hell will break loose in India and Indian media.

I think Indian government is looking forward to Olympics and other sports events for high international reputation.

How many posts do I need to start a thread here??

This isn΄t rare. However, I was impressed with their 6-0-0 record throughout Olympics! In the end they won also few other medals.

They are really trying hard, because countries with big sport names/events have bigger chance to host the Games,which is their goal.
