New Delhi :

Indian Hockey is going through tough times but this piece of news is surely going to bring a smile on IHF's face. The women's hockey team returned from Korea where they won the bronze medal in the recently concluded Asian Women Champions Trophy.

They stunned higher-ranked China 2-1 to win the bronze medal.

Monday morning saw the Indira Gandhi International Airport buzzing with activity as people flocked to see the women's hockey team who had just returned from Korea.

The Asian Women Champions Trophy saw the team winning the Bronze medal, a great performance considering the amount of controversy the team has gone through in the past month.

India's run up to the tournament was hit hard by a sex scandal involving coach MK Kaushik, who resigned from his post following sexual harassment allegations brought against him by a fringe player Ranjita Devi.

In Kaushik's place, who was associated with the women's team for nearly 20 years, assistant coach Vasu Thapliyal was given the charge of the team for the four-nation tournament.

The revolt by the players against the coach is yet to be solved, but this bite from Vasu is going to bring a smile to MK Kaushik's face.

"He is a golden man."

Indian Hockey is still suffering from the recent sex scandal but if this result is anything to go by then we are surely heading in the right direction.
