Tokyo Paralympics: Hockey team captains Rani Rampal, Manpreet Singh send best wishes to Indian contingent
Rani Rampal and Manpreet Singh sent their best wishes to the Indian contingent for the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.
The Dutch master tactician stepped down after leading the Indian women's hockey team to a fourth-place finish in the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics.
Sanjay Kohli, owner of Rakshak Sports, says the company supplied custom-made hockey sticks to six players of the women’s team and two to the men’s side.
Rio Olympics was the turning point, the experience helped us prepare well for Tokyo, says Rani Rampal
We finished 4th at the Tokyo Games, people are appreciating us and they are showing their love, Rampal said.
The family of Katariya, who scored four goals during the Olympics, found itself at the receiving end of allegedly casteist slurs from few people in their neighbourhood in Haridwar.
Soon after guiding the team to its best ever performance in the Olympic Games, the 47-year-old Dutchman announced that he would no longer continue in his current job citing personal reasons.
Praising the Chief Minister and Odisha for the support for the team and hockey in general, she said Indian women’s team is recognised now for its effort and hardwork.
Great Britain gave their everything in the second half and scored two goals to snatch the match from India's hands.
India captain Rani Rampal expressed that the national side will give everything it has to win its first Olympic medal.
All of them struck a deal. After the Olympics. Multiple members of this squad had below par performances in 2016 so they were desperate to show what they were capable of in Tokyo.
A truly inspirational leader, it was under Rani Rampal's captaincy that India created history when they won the women's Asia Cup in 2017 after 13 years.
Rani Rampal's father Rampal told reporters at their home in Shahabad, Kurukshetra that 'we are immensely happy at the team's performance.'
