Its all done by the magician of the hockey the great major Dhyan Chand he was the person to do such a magic.

In 1928, the team won its first Olympic gold medal and until 1956, the Indian men's team remained unbeaten in the Olympics, winning six gold medals in a row. In total, the Indian field hockey team has won eight Olympics gold medals, the highest among all national teams. India also won the 1975 World Cup defeating Pakistan 2-1 in the final.

In 1980, India once again became Olympic champions.

1928 Olympic was held in Amsterdam which stayed in Netherlands. On that times, it was a capital of that country.

I do not think because India became independent on 1947.

Usha said: (Oct 2, 2015)  
We got independence on 1947, so how can we participated in 1928.

Nishtha said: (Oct 6, 2015)  
India first participated at the Olympic Games in 1900, with a lone athlete. Hockey team was dominant in Olympic competition, winning eleven medals in.

The run included 8 gold medals total and six successive gold medals from 1928"1956. @Usha + @Rishab its possible as 1 year is enough for a country progress.

I think so because of Dhyan Chandu we won the first Olympic medal in hockey.

Harish said: (Jan 6, 2016)  
I think that India has won it in the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics vs Netherlands 3-0. It was also the credit of Dhyan Chand who was the captain of our Indian Hockey Team.

Uditii said: (Oct 3, 2016)  
Yes, it was a great match.

Dhyan Chand is a true legend.

But in 1928, british were ruling our country.

It's after the independence we have won the Olympic 1948 but before that, we used to play with the British.
