Back When Indian Hockey Won Olympic Gold…

Host country India will probably not make it into the semis of the Hockey World Cup.

In times like these it’s only fair (and saddening) to remember the glory days of Indian hockey, when they lived up to their status of “National Game of India.”

India bagged a hat-trick of gold medals at the Olympics. They began with Amsterdam in 1928 and followed it up with Los Angeles in 1932 and Berlin in 1936.

Maybe it’s time for another Chak De India, starring the men’s hockey team. That or making Sachin Tendulkar the spokesperson for Indian Hockey are the only hope for saving India’s Hockey team from the mess that is Hockey India.
