Togetherness, Team-First Mentality Helped India Win Tokyo 2020 Hockey Bronze: Reid

Australian chief coach Graham Reid said India's mental strength was clearly evident in the Tokyo Olympics men's hockey bronze medal match against Germany at the Oi Hockey Stadium on Thursday. India carved out a come-from-behind 5-4 win to finish on the Olympics podium after 41 years. India last won an Olympic medal (a gold) at Moscow 1980. Reid said the bio-bubble atmosphere helped Indian players bond well as a team and they demonstrated their stomach for a fight in all the matches. India had lost to Belgium in the semis. The Belgians defeated Australia for the gold medal. (Video courtesy: Hockey India; Image: Agencies)
