Three months after the Indian women’s hockey team showcased their best-ever Olympics outing, the man credited with the transformation, Dutch coach Sjoerd Marijne, is still waiting for the last instalment of his salary and cash incentives.


New Delhi, 03 November 2031                                                             

As per news report of The Indian Express,  the reason for the delay: a crashed computer and bureaucratic red-tape. India, under Marijne, secured a historic fourth position at Tokyo 2020, a remarkable turnaround for a team that had finished last at Rio in 2016. Though they failed to make it to the podium this time, their performance, along with the men’s bronze medal, got Indian hockey unprecedented national focus and sparked hope for the sport’s revival in the country.
