The day of 5 August 2021 was very special for Indian hockey. A year ago, the Indian men’s hockey team won the historic bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics. Now a year later, the month of August has brought happiness again for Indian hockey. This time the Indian women’s team won the bronze medal in the Commonwealth Games 2022. On this victory of Team India, the whole country was ecstatic with happiness. The Indian players themselves also did not miss to express their feelings openly and celebrated in a grand manner in the dressing room.
