Is 2016 year of resurgence for Indian hockey?In 2016, Indian Men's Hockey Team reached the Quarter final in Rio Olympics. The Women's Team's performance has also shown signs of improveement. This has been the first time since 1980 Moscow Olympics, Indian Women's Hockey Team played in Rio Olympics.
However, more heartening is the performance of Indian Colts in 2016. The young Indian team lifted the Junior Men's Hockey World Cup, beating Belgium 2-1 in the final in December, 2016. During the year, Orissa Government organised the bggest Hockey tornament of the world. 1458 Hockey teams from Odisha, Jharkhand and Chattisgarh consisting of 25,000 male and female Hockey players from these states took part in this grand tournament.
From the above indications, I feel that 2016 would prove to be the year of resurgence for Indian Hockey.
