Indian midfielder expressed excitement over hockey festivities for young players at Bhubaneswar

"It's great that the best Junior Players from across the globe will get to experience the world-class facilities in Bhubaneswar," says Indian Men's Hockey midfielder Simranjeet Singh.

Simranjeet Singh, a midfielder for the Indian Men's Hockey Team, was a major member of India's successful Olympic campaign in Tokyo, when he played a pivotal role in the bronze medal match against Germany. Simranjeet scored twice in the dramatic game, and reflecting on his performance, he expressed gratitude for earning the opportunity to represent India at the world's biggest sports event. "To be honest, I consider myself really fortunate. It was an incredible experience in Tokyo, and my goal was to perform flawlessly in the function I was assigned. Now, I'm waiting to return to camp and thoroughly analyse our performance in order to identify areas where I can improve "he explained.

Simranjeet was a member of the India Colts squad that won the 2016 FIH Junior Men's World Cup in Lucknow. Since then, his career has been steadily ascending. "That win in Lucknow altered the course of our lives irreversibly. It was truly a launching pad for many of us, and the ride thus far has been incredible. From here on out, my goal is to improve and be a part of India's next campaigns in the FIH Hockey Pro League, Asian Games, and other international competitions. There is still much I believe I can improve on "he continued.

Simranjeet stated that the upcoming FIH Odisha Hockey Men's Junior World Cup Bhubaneswar 2021 is slated to begin on 24 November in Bhubaneswar "It's fantastic that the world's finest junior players will get to experience Bhubaneswar's world-class facilities. We have performed in a variety of places throughout the world, but performing in Odisha is always exceptional due to the facilities, the hospitality of the Odisha State Government, and the fans. I'm overjoyed that hockey festivities are returning to India following nearly two years of inactivity due to covid. I wish all of the players an enjoyable competition and the best of success "He said by signing off.
