Men�s hockey team slips to 6th position

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Aug 23: The Indian men�s hockey team slipped one place to occupy the sixth place in the FIH rankings after their lacklustre show in Rio Olympics, while their female counterparts surprisingly gained one position to be at 12th in the latest charts released today.

The Indian men�s side crashed out of the Olympics in the quarterfinals by losing to eventual runners-up Belgium 1-3, while the women�s team failed to get past the group stage.

The Roelant Oltmans-coached side went into the Olympics as fifth in the rankings but two wins, two losses and a draw in the group stage and a defeat to Belgium in the last-eight stage saw them down to sixth in the latest rankings.

Australia�s Kookaburras � who finished in sixth place in Rio � remain in first place, but newly crowned Olympic champions Argentina earned enough points to move up five places to second. Argentina�s Los Leones sit just ahead of fourth place finishers and now third ranked Netherlands, with Rio 2016 Olympic bronze medallists Germany moving down one place to fourth. � PTI
