Laura Roper, who signed off a 20-year club career in April, has been chosen to represent Team GB for her fourth and final Olympic Games next month in Paris.

'It’ll be a matter of great pride for me and my family if I make the squad for Paris 2024 Olympics,' says Indian Men's Hockey Team defender Jarmanpreet Singh

The 27-year-old has made 106 appearances for the Indian Men's Hockey Team so far

New Delhi: Jarmanpreet Singh, a defender with 106 appearances for the Indian Men’s Hockey Team, debuted in the 2018 Men’s Hockey Champions Trophy in Breda, where India finished second. Since then, he has amassed a number of accolades, including winning the Gold in the 2018 Men’s Asian Champions Trophy in Muscat, Oman, and clinching the Silver medal in the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. Jarmanpreet also won the Gold medal with the Indian Men’s Hockey Team in the Asian Games in Hangzhou in 2023.

‘I will work hard to consistently do well for the national team,’ says Indian Women’s Hockey Team forward Sharmila Devi

The 22-year-old made a comeback to the national team after close to nine months

New Delhi: Making a comeback is always something that requires a lot of character and Indian Women’s Hockey Team forward Sharmila Devi sure has plenty of it. After representing the country last in May 2023 during a test series against Australia, Sharmila found herself playing in Indian colours after close to nine months when she took the field against China in February 2024 during the FIH Hockey Pro League 2023-24.

‘Hockey rajahs’: When Dhyan Chand’s India cast a spell on Australia

In 1935, the Indian hockey team went on a tour of New Zealand and Australia, where they won the respect of opponents, fans and media alike.

For the Indian men’s field hockey team, one of the biggest obstacles in their way at any major international tournament in the 21st century is a strong Australian side. The Aussies just seem to have India’s number: no matter which players are on the green pitch, the result rarely defies the predictable. But in the first half of the last century, it was India that was the hockey giant, flicking away Australians at will. An excellent display of its dominance was in 1935, when a visiting team captained by the extraordinarily talented Dhyan Chand went Down Under.
