Indian hockey team given a golden chance to show their mettle in the Olympics

Olympic_Logo

Only some days are left for Olympics to begin and sportspersons around the world are waiting eagerly, honing the strength in their nerves and cherishing the dream in their hearts.

For Indian sport, which has for years been a marginal note in the pages of the famous ‘tome of the champions’, the window of optimism is all of a sudden looking larger than ever.

Yes, Once the acknowledged inspiration of world hockey, India will return to the Olympic stage following a break of eight years, unwavering not to end up as losing competitor in London where they win their fourth of the eight Olympic gold medals way back in 1948.

The London Olympics offer the previous winners with a golden chance to compensate for the Beijing Games fiasco in 2008, when, for the first time in the history of the game, India was unsuccessful to meet the criteria for the Olympics.

Yet, for a team which won its previous Olympic gold in 1980 Moscow Games, the road to London has been an extended, treacherous one, particularly following the 2008 failure in Santiago.

The Indians might be anxious to break their 32-year award jinx in London, however for a side which is currently languishing at the 10th position in the world level, a top- six finish in the forthcoming Olympics would be more than admirable and anything on top of that will be a bonus.

No one better than India’s head coach Michael Nobbs can judge his team’s performance. Looking at the competition, India will be a surprise package in London, and all credit should go to Nobbs who, just in a year’s time, has completely changed the team and made the players battle-ready.

To make their mark in the London Games, the Indians will have to create an excellent show since they have been positioned in a tough Group B next to reigning Olympic champions Germany, earlier champions Netherlands, New Zealand, Korea as well as Belgium.

Hockey in the 2012 Olympics will be played on pink and blue turf and this ultimately might become the breaking point as the multi-colored playing field has received rave reviews from players and trainers for its speed and uneven bounce.

Not like other teams, the Indians did not get sufficient opportunity of practice on the blue turf. however the current France and Spain tour and moreover the Olympic Test event earlier this year is supposed to provide the Indians a reasonable idea regarding the playing field and climatic conditions on offer in London.

Nevertheless, the Indian hockey team appears to be a good combination of young and trained players who have justified themselves commendably in current times. So, I believe there is no reason to think that they will not be able to match the expectations of the hockey appreciative Indian masses………….well…What’s your take on it?
