Kurukshetra, August 7

The celebrations began at the home of women’s hockey team player Navneet Kaur in Shahabad in Kurukshetra after a brave Indian women’s hockey team stunned New Zealand to win the bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Buta Singh, Navneet’s father, said, “We are happy with the girls’ performances and are getting congratulatory messages from all over. Navneet scored for the team to record the historic victory. We were nervous before the game and Navneet’s mom kept praying throughout the game and didn’t see the game. We just hope the girl will continue to make the country proud in future tournaments.

After winning the match, Navneet spoke to his father to share his experience and winning moments.

Navneet said: “We worked hard for this and we are very happy.” Forward Navneet was also on the hockey team when the team narrowly missed out on Olympic bronze last year.

Buta Singh, a farmer by profession, said: “She started acting when she was only seven years old. She worked very hard. The team is likely to return on August 10 and they will be welcomed as a winner here.
