Hockey win for India - and for shooters too - hurrah!Team India won the bronze medal in the Hockey World League Final (HWLF), defeating Germany 2-1. With just a few minutes left for the end of play, Harmanpreet Singh scored a goal. Though the opponents' team were riddled with injury-prone players not taking to the field, it should not be considered an easy win for India. They did have a tough time against the attacking Germans.
In Japan, at the 10th Asian Championship of Rifle & Pistol competition, Jitu Rai bagged the bronze in the men's pistol event, thus ensuring a gold medal for India in the team event. Heena Sidhu also bagged a bronze in her pistol event, with the team winning the silver.
These wins overshadowed the disastrous loss to Sri Lanka in cricket today.
