With an extraordinary victory over Australia, India’s women’s hockey team gracefully went down in history by qualifying for the Olympic semifinals for the very first time. India’s Gurjit Kaur, who originates from the Miadi Kalan village in Amritsar, Punjab, scored the winning goal and brought about the remarkable 1-0 win over Australia in the quarter-finals.

In a country where cricket often dominates over other sports, the winning performance by the Indian women’s hockey team has definitely turned the tables around.

India’s last outstanding performance in the Olympics was back in the 1980 Moscow Games where they finished fourth. This time around, India’s flawless win showed a robust mixture, filled with great energy and grace. The team looked dynamic, well focused and highly determined and the defence led by Savita Punia tackled every attack by Australia in a strategic manner.

India rejoiced as many, including celebrities and politicians took to social media to celebrate the win.
