India at Rio - Rani Rampal profile


The women's hockey team is representing India at the Olympics after 36 years and there are many hopes that Rani Rampal will be winning a medal for India.

Rani was chosen to represent India when she was 15 years old, the youngest player to represent any country at the hockey World Cup in 2010. She helped India win its first bronze medal at the event.

She was also a part of the team that bagged silver at Asia Cup and she played both the Asian and Commonwealth Games in 2010.

Rani, who is the daughter of a cart-puller in Haryana, has struggled to reach this spot.
