Australia tour takes top priority for Men’s team coach Craig Fulton to enhance Olympic preparations

The Indian men’s hockey team is gearing up for their Australia tour, starting on April 6 in Perth. Coach Craig Fulton highlighted the tour’s importance to fine-tune their game for the Paris Olympics. India ended a 41-year medal drought in the Tokyo Olympics, raising expectations for Paris.

Fulton emphasized the challenge ahead against Australia, currently ranked fifth in the world. He emphasized the team’s focus on improvement and the realistic goal of maintaining their fourth position in the world rankings. With a new squad and coaching staff, the team aims to continue their success from Tokyo.

The coach emphasized the team’s focus on fitness, mental preparation, and tactical improvements. With a tough Pool B in the Olympics, including strong opponents like Belgium and Australia, India faces challenges within themselves. Fulton stressed the importance of managing themselves and delivering consistent performances throughout the tournament.

Fulton’s perspective on the upcoming tournament reflects the team’s determination to start strong and maintain their performance levels throughout the competition. As they prepare to face formidable opponents, the Indian men’s hockey team remains focused on their goal of achieving success at the Paris Olympics.
