PM Narendra Modi:
The exceptional performance of the Men’s and Women’s Hockey Team has captured the imagination of our entire nation.
There is a renewed interest towards Hockey that is emerging across the length and breadth of India.
This is a very positive sign for the coming times.
We will always remember the great performance of our Women’s Hockey Team at Tokyo2020.
They gave their best throughout.
Each and every member of the team is blessed with remarkable courage, skill and resilience. India is proud of this outstanding team.
We narrowly missed a medal in Women’s Hockey but this team reflects the spirit of New India- where we give our best and scale new frontiers.
More importantly, their success at Tokyo2020 will motivate young daughters of India to take up Hockey and excel in it.
Proud of this team.
