Milkha Singh is perhaps the most iconic track athlete from India, and his son Jeev Milkha Singh has been Asia\'s top Golfer for over 20 years. In conversation with the Editor MS Dhillon, the elite duo describe the level of medical support and the evolution of sports sciences relevant to elite athletes in the 1960s and compare it with the medical facilities and support that is available for athletes in India in the 21st century. Both discuss the issues that they feel are pertinent to develop sports sciences in India to a level equivalent to that in the world.
