The Indian Hockey team defeated the Germany team with 5-4 score and brought a Bronze medal.
Players like Simranjeet Singh scored a brace while Hardik Singh, Harmanpreet Singh and Rupinder Pal Singh were the other goal getters for India.
Determined to clinch a medal, the Indians made one of the most memorable comebacks in the history of the game, fighting back from a two goal deficit to turn the match in their favour.
After the historic victory of the Indian Men’s Hockey team, the microblogging social media platform Twitter was flooded with tweets and messages with #IndianMen’sHockey #Olympics.
With this, India has three Bronze medals in the history of Olympics, the first one was in 1968 Mexico Olympics, second was in Munich in 1972 and now, in 2021 at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The Tokyo Olympics which started from the 23rd of July, 2021, would end on the 8th of August, 2021 in Tokyo, Japan. Despite being held in 2021, the Tokyo Olympics are called 2020 as it was postponed due to the ongoing Wuhan virus pandemic. In 2021, the Tokyo Olympics are being organised, and the name Tokyo Olympics 2020 is still retained for branding reasons.
