British athletes have enjoyed a successful 12 months in the build-up to Rio 2016 with the team winning seven medals at the Beijing 2015 world championships. That's roughly twice the security contingent that was used at the London Olympics.
"We know that every medal will matter and it is an extremely tight medal race". There will be no alterations to the official rules of golf for the Olympic competition meaning the sport so many have come to love will be presented in its familiar format in a 72-hole match play competition with the top three finishers taking home the Olympic hardware.
Talking about team's progress, India's head coach Dharmendra Tiwari said, "The weather is pleasant, it's less windy and temperature drops a bit at night".
Other teams who could potentially be wearing Olympic jewelry to the closing ceremony include a hungry German team, a talented but unproven Argentine squad, and that same Honduran team beaten in the qualifying round by Mexico who qualified themselves and will be looking for vindication. Ennis-Hill, Farah and Rutherford all claimed gold while Shara Proctor took long jump silver and there were bronze medals for the men's and women's 4x400m relay teams.
"My phone will be off till the Games is over, we are not allowed to talk during the training", said Deepika.
He also tried to allay fears of crime and health hazards such as the Zika virus in Rio, not to mention reports that some venues may not be ready for the Games. There's still some time left before Rio to put some work in as well.
He added that "we're confident that Rio will provide a safe environment for the health of our athletes".
Some 85,000 members of the security forces - 47,000 policemen and 38,000 soldiers - will be mobilised to ensure the safety of 10,500 athletes as well as officials, journalists and tourists from around the world expected for the Games which run from August 5-21.
