Hockey: Jarmanpreet Singh Eyes Olympics Debut In Paris, Ready To Give 100% For The Team


Indian men’s hockey team defender Jarmanpreet Singh is eyeing to play his debut Olympics in Paris after missing out on the historic bronze medal campaign in Tokyo, Japan.

Jarmanpreet has been a constant feature under chief coach Craig Fulton, starting every match of the Asian Champions Trophy Chennai 2023, the Asian Games Hangzhou 2022, the Test matches against South Africa and Australia, and all FIH Hockey Pro League 2023/24 matches, except the game against Germany on June 8, where he took to the pitch in the second half.

The chemistry in the team is exceptional. We have regular player meetings off the pitch where we discuss previous games and ways we can help each other on the pitch,” Jarmanpreet said in a Hockey India release. “The whole team is pulling in the same direction, and I feel we are in good rhythm. Like all the other players, I always try to give my best on the pitch and hope to make the squad for the Olympics. It would be a matter of great pride for me and my family if I play in my first Olympic Games at the Paris 2024 Olympics—a dream come true. If I do get selected, my aim would still be to give my hundred percent for the team, as the team always comes first.
