Tokyo Olympics: Fighting India women lose 1-2 to Argentina in hockey semifinal; to fight for bronze now
TOKYO: A brave Indian women's hockey team put up a gritty performance but it was not enough to secure a maiden Olympic final berth as it lost 1-2 to world no.2 Argentina in a hard-fought semifinal of the ongoing Games on Wednesday.
India still have a chance to win the bronze medal as they will take on Great Britain in the third-fourth place play-off match on Friday.
Well played India. Let's focus on the Bronze match. Best of Luck Team India (both Men & Women Team).
Well fought match sisters, we will win bronze definitely
In continuation of my thought, I was saying that women or men hockey was covered with little importance, but cricket takes lot more space than all games combined. India needs to give equal importance to other games to flourish. India and China have almost comparable population, but Chinese are not crazy for cricket (as it takes major time for the entire India when the matches are taking place), and they have given much superior performance in the Olympic, but in comparison India performance was dismal. We need to encourage other games and our players equally like cricket (maybe even more).
Indian team played bravely and my salutatios to them. I however realize that so long people will be crazy for "Cricket" perhaps India will not be able to flourish other games.. You can see the news
From a 12 pace in the previous olympics to a 3 or 4 th place, ii would say thats a massive improvement. It was always going to be a tough match, but the women have done themselves proud with a good performance. The higher ranked teams have lived up to their reputation and have fully earned their place in the final. All the best to them, may the best team win.
Hard luck Ladies,,,,, any way try for Bronze..... What a hard fought match, Argentina was shivering up to 2 nd half...... Indian Gals are slowly there , 2024 Paris , we can knock down Gooras.
It's ok, was expected. It's going to be hard ag inst Brits too, give your best.
india has consistently failed to win olympic medals due primarily to : (1) sportspersons are often sed only on the basis of caste, region, re gion, recommendation, bribe and so on (2) public servants in the sports ministry from the minister onwards downbelow behave as the masters and not servants of sportspersons (3) sports infrastructure in india is the poorest in the world
How many times you have given bribe bhai
Indians lack endurance, stamina, fitness and more over proper international professional coaches. Indian coaches are totally useless. India is not a sporting country. 1.plus population and they cannot produce good professional athletes. It's a big shame on them. India's sports minister is a laughing matter. The clown has no knowledge about sports.
