  1. Hockey gold was good. More so because we beat Pakistan. But we should not become euphoric, put our heads down and prepare, prepare and prepare. According to coach of indian team, we are on the right track but we have a long way to go. To have a system in place that produces hockey players, create a team that wins consistently by playing against teams like Australia, Germany, Holland etc. we have to wait till 2024. I hope we have patience and we do not go after coaches head after Rio Olympic when India is certain not to win any medal.

    1. Thank you ALok for your comment. I hope they play well in the Rio Olympics 2016. Now the expectation has raised and they have a lot of pressure on them. They are sure to improve and give better performances in future.

We would love to hear your point of view
