From Indian air rifle champs to Hungarian water polo domination, immigrants in NYC are rooting for their home country athletes. We're joined by:

  • Roopa Unnikrishnan, Indian New Yorker and air rifle gold medalist at the 1998 Commonwealth games, to discuss Abhinav Bindra, a shooter from India who is a favorite at the London games
  • Peter Felvegi, Hungarian New Yorker, water polo player and coach, to discuss Hungary's top-ranked water polo team.
