Eager to win Gold at 18th Asian Games,' says dragflicker Rupinder Pal Singh

Eager to win Gold at 18th Asian Games,' says dragflicker Rupinder Pal Singh

New Delhi, July 24 (UNI) After a strong comeback against New Zealand in the three-match Series

over the weekend in Bengaluru, the ace Indian drag-flicker Rupinder Pal Singh vies to continue top form in the Indian Team's title defence at Jakarta Asian Games beginning from August 18.



"Personally for me, playing against a quality team like New Zealand who won the Silver Medal at the Commonwealth Games was very important. Since I had missed out all the action during the FIH Champions Trophy, I had to find my rhythm ahead of the Asian Games in Jakarta," expressed Rupinder Pal Singh about his comeback.



After the successful Series against New Zealand, the Asian Games-bound Indian Team have returned home for a week-long break and will re-join the National Camp on August 1. At the Asian Games, Indian Men's Team are grouped in Pool A with Korea, Japan, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Hong Kong China.



In the camp before the team leaves for Jakarta, Rupinder said the team will further work on the specific areas to ensure they have left no stone unturned in their preparations for the Asian Games.

"The one-week break will help us rejuvenate as some of us have been in the National Camp continuously since April 28. When we return to camp, the team will sit together, watch videos from our matches against New Zealand and try and find out ways to improve further. We are eager to defend the Gold Medal at Asian Games in Jakarta," he concluded.
