The Indian men’s hockey team has resumed training at just the right time after a break forced by COVID-19 and will be in a strong position for next year’s Tokyo Olympics, believes senior defender Kothajit Singh.

The national camps for the men’s and women’s hockey teams resumed at the Sports Authority of India centre here in August after a 45-day break because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s been great to be back on the pitch. We have seen a lot of improvement over the last two months and we are shaping up well for the Olympics,” said the Manipuri player, who has represented India in over 200 matches.

“We have returned to the pitch at the right time and therefore we have enough months to get back to our full form and get even better as a side.”
