CWG to Olympics to India?

After CWG, India must bid for Olympics: Sir Redgrave 

New Delhi, Jul 29 (PTI) Impressed with India's preparedness for the upcoming Commonwealth Games, five-time Olympic gold medalist rower Sir Steve Redgrave today said the country should take forward the legacy of the October 3-14 megaevent and bid for the Olympics in future.
"After the Commonwealth Games if India feel they have the infrastructure, then go for the Olympics. Having Olympics in India would be absolutely amazing. The enthusiasm would be much higher than the Commonwealth Games. India should take forward the Games legacy and bid for Olympics," said the legendary English rower who had won gold medals at five consecutive Olympics, starting from 1984 to 2000.
"I think may be three years later after the Commonwealth Games, they (India) would feel that yes we are ready for that (Olympics)," Redgrave said.
