Indian men's hockey team captain Manpreet Singh has vowed to end country's medal drought at the Olympics and dedicate the achievement to the country's COVID warriors.
Experienced forward Ramandeep Singh revealed on Wednesday that the Indian men's hockey team is simulating Olympic atmosphere at its training base in Bengaluru to prepare for the Tokyo Games.
The AHF had successfully organised such workshops once every 30 days in the last 11 months. A group of 12-30 coaches and umpires will attend the AHF-HI Exclusive Online Education Workshops this month.
According to Thierry Weil, anyone affected during the Olympics will be quarantined, and all close contacts will be checked following the IOC guidelines.
Seasoned striker Yuvraj Walmiki has backed Manpreet Singh led Indian men's hockey team to bag a medal in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.
The 22-year-old Manpreet Kaur got a call to join the senior Indian women's hockey team last year in January and will be playing her International debut match at the Tokyo Olympics.
According to defender Birendra Lakra there is a healthy competition for places in the national hockey team and no one can take his spot for granted.
At the Olympics, it is all about winning those close games, said Raghunath, who is currently the vice-president of Karnataka Hockey Association.
Indian men's hockey great Dhyan Chand was the leading scorer in the tournament, netting 14 goals from five games, that included a hat-trick in the final against the Netherlands.
Not even a partition and a rearranged team could diminish the confidence of this bunch of Indians, who went on to defeat their colonisers in the final and see the Indian flag rise.
