#Fencing is one of the ever-present events at Olympics but an Indian featured for a first time ever in 2021. Bhavani Devi created history even before stepping on piste.

In #Badminton...

Imagine being Satwik & Chirag. They won 2 out of 3 matches, losing only against the world's best. They defeated the pair that would go on to win 🥇 & incredibly, their campaign was over in group stage.

After ~1975, natural grass field was replaced with artificial grass field in #Hockey

Indians were masters playing on natural grass (8 Golds from 1928-80) but new surface favored physical strength over technicalities.

This was done to curb Indian dominance in Hockey.
India in #Hockey

• Gold (8) - 1928, 1932, 1936, 1948, 1952, 1956, 1964, 1980
• Silver (1) - 1960
• Bronze (3) - 1968, 1972, 2021

Degradation from 1976 onwards (Exception 1980) -
• 5th - 1984
• 6th - 1988
• 7th - 1976, 1992, 2000, 2004
• 8th - 1996, 2016
• 12th - 2012
Spot on for 1980 exception. Countries boycotted 1980 Moscow Olympics are highlighted in this #Map.

This is why #India could win Gold in #Hockey in 1980.

Some criticised for not doing chores, others moulded by the heat of farms. Living up to a brother who represented the nation, rejoicing a sister who bought a stick with daily wages. Playing #hockey to escape an alcoholic father and to vindicate a father who fought societal norms.
From cradles of the sport to a Naxal stronghold. These are the larger-than-life back-stories of the Indian hockey’s giant-killers:
#Tokyo2020 #Hockey
#RaniRampal (26, Forward) Haryana:
Rani has been playing international hockey for almost half her life, a journey that began with her playing with a broken hockey stick while wearing a salwar-kameez. She made her debut at the age of 14. Now 26, she is the key player of the team.

Their last olympic campaign was a disaster. They failed to win a single game at #Rio2016 finishing last in their group. ..

Writer @waub has been a fan of the Toronto @MapleLeafs his whole life. He inherited his love for the team from his father, who idolized George Armstrong, the Indigenous captain who led the team to Stanley Cup glory in ’67. thewalrus.ca/loveofthegame-… 1/5
“This expression of fandom is more than just a ritual and more complex than just supporting a professional hockey team," writes @waub. "Like those of so many other sports fans, the roots of my devotion are intergenerational.” thewalrus.ca/loveofthegame-… 2/5 A picture of George Armstrong, of Algonquin and Irish roots,
In the fall of 1998, when @waub moved to Toronto, his devotion to the @MapleLeafs only grew stronger. "As a student, I couldn’t afford tickets to games, but living just a few blocks from Maple Leaf Gardens was thrilling,” he writes. thewalrus.ca/loveofthegame-… 3/5
