Johannesburg:

India bagged the bronze medal in the women's version of the Champions Challenge Hockey tournament with a creditable 1-0 win against hosts South Africa in Johannesburg yesterday. India was led by Tingonlima Chanu in the six-team competition. India, which was scheduled to organize the event before it was shifted to South Africa following the September 11 attacks on the United States, earned the right to participate by virtue of being the original hosts. India drew its first two matches before beating South Africa and Russia in the first leg of the tournament. However, India lost to South Korea 2-3 and qualified to the play-off for the third-fourth place against South Africa. England beat South Korea in the title clash. (PTI)
