The Indian Womens hockey team has continued to rise in the sport of hockey over the years under coach Janneke Schopman, despite their incredible success at the Tokyo Olympics, and now has their sights set on the World Cup, which will be held in Spain and the Netherlands from July 1 to 17.The team finished third in the just concluded Pro League, and captain and goalkeeper Savita Punia believes the team will take advantage of their recent results and win a medal at the prestigious tournament.In an open letter to Indian hockey fans, Savita states that the Indian Womens Hockey Team has never won a medal at the World Cup, and that it is our desire to make this dream come true this time.If they are able to accomplish the feat in three weeks, it will be an exciting moment.Since then, they have competed in seven editions, but never reached the last-four stage.The squad came in seventh place in the last edition held in London in 2018.Despite the progress made, the team has come a long way and is bursting with confidence after a successful run in Tokyo and then in the Pro League.We were boosted by our performance in Tokyo, putting us on the podium in international competitions. We put our energies into winning the FIH Pro League, and finishing third in this prestigious league has given us a boost ahead of the World Cup, Savita said in the letter.While their performances at the Tokyo Olympics surprised everyone, their performances in Pro League were fantastic.They scored some fantastic goals, fought to the very end, and Savita's performance in front of the goal was a revelation to say the least.The way they took world No. We've all worked hard to become a better team in the last few months, and our on-field successes are due to a hardworking team of support staff who tirelessly work behind the scenes to ensure we become the best we can be, the captain wrote in the letter.The team's bonding has also played a vital role in their development, along with their hard work on the field.They are always together, whether it's on WhatsApp messenger or Instagram reels or Twitter feeds, and one can only hope that they will accomplish something that no one has done before.In Pool B, the Indian women's squad has been sideed with England, New Zealand, and China, and they will face England on July 3.
