The Indian women’s hockey team’s medal dreams dashed on Friday after it lost its bronze medal match to Great Britain. 

India lost the bronze medal match to Great Britain 3-4. 

Meanwhile, the Indian eves are being hailed by all for their fighting spirit.

This was for the first time that an Indian women’s hockey team played a medal match.

With this loss, the Indian eves finished 4th at the Tokyo Olympics, their highest-ever Olympic finish in history, and competed for a medal at the Games for the first time.

Although the Indian women’s hockey team lost their bronze medal match, they won the hearts of every Indian for the never say die spirit it showed on the turf.

India women’s team booked a ride to the quarterfinals, where they shocked Australia to earn their first-ever semifinals berth, but could not reach the final as they went down to Argentina 1-2.

Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said: “Playing for bronze in finals is in itself a victory. This team has given aspirations, confidence & hopes to many young girls across the country to chase their dreams.”

Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi said: “The score card doesn’t reflect the achievements of the Indian women‘s hockey team. This result is the best ever Olympic women‘s hockey till now and has surpassed every expectations. It only sets the stage for better performances in the future. Congratulations to the entire team.”
