The Indian Hockey Players- A Big Embarrassment for the Country

hokey

The bottom-place finish in the Olympic Games will leave constant soreness for Indian hockey team after the team stopped to its sixth consecutive defeat. Also, it all proves that a great deal more is required of the Indian side to be influential at this level.

The huge issue coming into view is related to the India team`s preparation for the Olympics. Be it physical strength or mental state, the Indian team demonstrated an apparent lack of training for the Olympic Games.

Were the Indian players actually prepared for this campaign is an issue that demands a response? One should not forget the fact that several sportspersons and team across the world practice for four years to come and accomplish at the Olympic Games.

According to me, the overall lack of practice of the Indian team in such competing situations against top level rivals was very much evident.

Indian journalists and critics have greatly condemned the country’s men’s hockey team after it lost five consecutive matches at London 2012 – comprising a 3-0 defeat to Belgium in its very last match.

The front page of the Hindustan Times read: “A new low for Indian hockey: Played 5, lost 5″, whereas the caption on its match story read: “National game now a national shame!

Were we truly as prepared as we were informed in advance of India`s return to the Olympics, after losing out in the 2008 Beijing Games.

It has been a worse fall from our earlier low of the No. 8 finish at Atlanta in 1996.

Moreover, this 12th-place finish incident in London brings back sore memories of the 1986 World Cup in the British capital.

All Indian hockey fans were hopeful that India will in any case win the last game to avoid a repeat of that failure. Not that the 11th place would have condensed the extent of a campaign gone wrong, however a bottom spot can leave a bigger mark on the minds of the young players.

Though, India has won eight gold medals at the Olympics, consisting of six in series, beginning in 1928 at Amsterdam. Nevertheless, they have been under pressure to stay competitive since then.

Are our expectations too high or is it the training of the players inadequate? Whatever the reason maybe, it is the loss of the country’s foothold in sports in the world.
