If you follow a little hockey for the past 2-3 years, you'll notice that India has consistently done well recently. India is currently ranked 4th and also came 4th in the incomplete 2020-21 FIH Pro League.


So India was expected to reach the semis but it's still a big moment for us to see our team reach this stage after such a long time.

If we get a medal(with a golden color), you might even see a revival of sorts for Indian hockey.

Yes, agreed!

Cricket is Still the Centre of the Sport but other supports are surviving.

Thanks to few people who are doing great work and individual those are doing good performance in the sports i .e Tennis, Badminton etc... and financially Sponsorship by few organizations.

Kannada should be in Olympics. I mean sports like Baseball which is played in even less nation's than cricket is in damn Olympics. But if we can beat Belgium who are current world. champs and not in too good form at the moment, it would be great. I honestly don't think India can win gold. Aussies are favs at the moment. We are definitely good enough for silver this edition. Great for subcontinent hockey. I hope it can revitalise Pakistan too.

Kabaddi too should be in Olympics along with cricket. The Olympic Committee should consider more of Asian origin games as well.
A website that lists Asian origin sports that could be included in the Olympics. This website also contains Malkhamb which too can be a possible inclusion. @Raj-Hindustani @Arulmozhi Varman

Cricket is a sh*thole of a game. We already allocate way too many resources and money to cricket which most commonwealth countries already stopped playing except for South Asia

Just divert the damn resources to other sports and track & field events

I was looking at some old Indo-Pak hockey matches and it was really heart wrenching to see pakistanis play shoeless in the 1980 Moscow Olympics


Both India & Pak were formidable teams in the world of hockey with legends on both sides. Sadly, we focused more on cricket with our sports associations putting hockey on the backburner which lead to western countries taking over top spots. Though Indian hockey has picked up and we're currently ranked 3rd, I wish we could bring back old glory and ignite our rivalry

I'm happy for India. They need to win gold at the very least in one game.
