India had one real golden age of hockey that lasted for probably 52 years from 1928 to 1980.
In that period we won 8 golds, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals in the Olympics. We won one
gold, one silver and one bronze in three World Cups.
After 1980 right up to 2016, the tally reads: Zero golds, zero silvers and zero bronzes in the
Olympics and World Cups combined! Forget the golden age, we are yet to even compete!
