Hockey India is the governing body of field hockey in India. The India national field hockey team is the national men's team representing field hockey in India. It is the first non-European team to be a part of the International Hockey Federation. In 1928, the team won its first Olympic gold medal and until 1956, the Indian men's team remained unbeaten in the Olympics, winning six gold medals in a row. In total, the Indian field hockey team has won eight Olympics gold medals — the highest among all national teams.   On Feb 26th 2012, the Indian men's national field hockey team qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London after a gap of 8 years. The team had a resounding victory over France in the finals of the Olympic qualifiers by beating France 8-1.But, the team's performance at London left much to be desired, being the only team which lost all 5 matches in a row in pool matches - a record. Finally the team ended up last in a field of twelve competing teams. Some of the team members include: Ignace Tirkey, Sandeep Singh, V. R. Raghunath, Gurbaj Singh, Dharamvir Singh, Birendra Lakra, Danish Mujtaba etc
