The victorious Indian hockey team of the 1936 Olympic Games

The Indian Hockey team set records of many sorts during their golden era at the Olympics. The 1928 Olympics saw them conceding no goals and winning gold in the 1928, 1932, 1936 editions and only conceding 3 goals - Richard James Allen was the goalkeeper of these 3 Olympics.  In the 1928 Summer Olympics, Richard Allen played five matches as goalkeeper, and no goals were scored against him.

In the 1936 Summer Olympics he played four matches as goalkeeper and he let only one goal get past him. This tally of conceding only two goals over three Olympic games remains an Olympic record to this day.
