The story of India winning the first gold
India participated as an independent nation in the 14th London Olympiad in 1948. It was the first time that India was participating in an international sporting event and Indian hockey team made history in London. They went on winning matches against Austria, Argentina, Spain and then finally Britain.
Britain lost the final match of Olympics hockey to its former colony by 4-0. It was a stunning performance of a team that comprises of new players including Kishen Lal the captain and KD Singh (Babu) the vice-captain. And the credit of making a winning team with new players goes to the coach Tapan Das.
