Athens:

India came from behind to record a remarkable 4-2 win against South Africa and keep their Olympic medal hopes alive in the men's hockey competition today. Trailing 0-2 at one stage, the eight-time gold medallists showed their class to emerge victorious in the thrilling contest, which they needed to win to remain on track for a semifinal berth from Pool B. India were greatly served by their three most senior players -- Dhanraj Pillay, Baljit Singh Dhillon and Dilip Tirkey, all of whom scored a goal apiece before Gagan Ajit Singh's last minute goal brought the emphatic win for the side.
