THE OTHER MEDALS BHARAT WON IN SYDNEY

   Yes, you are right. Bad grammar on my part. One shouldn't end a
sentence with a preposition.
   I'm not much of a writer I'm afraid, although I read extensively. I'm
happy if I can just get my point accross.
   I'm fairly lax about usage, but (like you) there are some things up
with which I will not put. (To borrow a phrase from Winston Churchhill).
