Neither coach nor money, yet the women of India won the gold medal

India’s impressive run at the Commonwealth Games 2022 continues, with the country winning 13 medals in the first five days so far. One of the most special moments came on Tuesday, when India won the gold medal in the lawn ball event. The Indian women’s team created history as it was the first time that India won a medal in this event and that too straight away.

In the final, India defeated South Africa 17-10. The journey of Lovely Choubey, Roopa Rani Tirkey, Pinky and Nayanmoni Sakia, who made the nation famous, was not easy as they neither had the funds nor the coach. That is, he did everything with his hard work.

The four women come from different backgrounds, each from a simple family, but despite all this, they made history here. This team shared their experiences after winning the gold medal.

The players said that we have achieved what we worked hard for and what we thought. For several months we were engaged in this. On how the journey of Commonwealth Games started in 2010, Team India said, “While we are playing at different levels, we have also won many medals.” But our aim was to get a medal in the Commonwealth Games.

The team hasn’t had a coach for four years.

The women’s team has not had a coach since the 2018 Commonwealth Games. That is, for the last four years, he was engaged in preparation on his own and now after four years i.e. in the Commonwealth Games 2022, this hard work was successful and India got the gold medal.

Lawn ball has been a part of Commonwealth Games for 92 years, in which India has won a medal for the first time. Crores of people in the country did not know the name, meaning of this game, but when history is made, everyone is curious about it.

Few know the four members of the women’s team, including Pyare Choubey from Jharkhand, who is a police constable. Nayanmoni Sakia is working in the Forest Department, Pinky is a teacher in a school in Delhi. While Roopa Rani is the District Sports Officer in Jharkhand.
