The 1928 India team that played five games without conceding a single goal! (Source: By Bharatiya Hockey – http://www.bharatiyahockey.org/granthalaya/goal/, Copyrighted free use, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=6861402)

Field Hockey made it’S debut in London 1908 but it is India’s success story that is worth noting. India have eight gold medals in the men’s field hockey Olympics. Six of these came in a row from 1928-56, the others in 1964 and in 1980. In fact the Indians played 25 games in a row without losing a single point 1928-56! Remarkable, indeed. And to add to the superiority they managed medals in all games 1928-80, except in 1976 when they very surprisingly did not make it past the group phase.
