THE NATIONAL HOCKEY TEAM MOST PROBABLY WILL NOT BE THE PART OF THE TOKYO OLYMPICS 2020
A heart broking report for the National game of Pakistan Hockey that it is not going to be the part of the Tokyo Olympics 2020 as it hasn’t been listed in the pre-qualifying round for the mega sporting event.
As per the news, the former secretary PHF Shahbaz Ahmed due to the financial crisis could not send the team for the Pro Hockey League due to which the team hasn’t got to the qualifying round. As per the selection rule, only those team were supposed to be the part of the Tokyo Olympics 2020 which had participated in the Pro Hockey League and manage to gain the required ranking to enter the qualifying round for the Olympics but Pakistan did not opt the pre-qualifying round.
Due to this decision of PHF, the future of the National Game Hockey is likely to face a very tough time in the future and the participation of the Pakistani Hockey Team has also become doubtful in the Global sporting event.
Despite having almost empty possibilities, the Pakistan Hockey Federation says that they are going to contact the FIH by writing a request letter to them for adding the name of the National Team in the pre-qualifying round.
Here to remind that the Pakistan hockey team has been the champion due to its brilliant performance in a different time. It has written its names in the winning list trice in Gold Medal Olympics; the first held in Rome in 1960, the second in Mexico City in 1968, and the third in Los Angeles in 1984.
The National Team has also succeeded to clinch three Silver Medal in Melbourne 1956, Tokyo 1964 and Munich 1972. Whereas, two Bronze Medals as in Montreal 1976 and Barcelona 1992 were also written in the victory list of Pakistan Hockey- The National Sport.
