The very talented women’s Indian hockey team just grabbed its first trophy in the 2017 IIHF Challenge cup of Asia which took place in Thailand. This group consisting 20 women parred every obstacle to achieve what they have today. If you ask why this needs attention? Because, their journey was rough and their success requires your attention.
It did not stop with that. The match by itself was a great struggle for them. Unlike our other sports, it took the Ice Hockey team quite sometime to represent our country on an International level. They first represented internationally in the year 2016 at China. However, it wasn’t the case this time. Chanting the slogan ‘Bharath Mata ki Jai’, they won the game against Philippines with 4-3. Nothing mattered, not even the results, that inspiration and that passion impressed us much more than anything else.
