Bangalore: The upcoming men’s hockey Champions Trophy in London will be one of the key tournaments ahead of the Rio Olympics as it will give the Indian team an opportunity to see where it stands, feels captain Sardar Singh.
The tournament in London is slated to begin on June 10. The event which will be held at the Lee Valley Olympic venue will see India lock horns with world champions Australia, defending Olympic gold medallists Germany, Great Britain, Belgium and South Korea.
“Doing well against each of these teams is important for us as it will show where we stand in the lead-up to the Olympics. It will give us an opportunity to test the latest weapons (tactics) we have been working on in the camp,” said Sardar.
