    At Rio, there will be 12 teams divided into two groups of 6 teams each. In the men's competition, India have been fitted into a really tough group, and they will have to play extremely well to finish in the top four and qualify for the quarter finals.

    Field Hockey happens to be the sport that has brought India the most number of medals over the years - 11 medals (8 gold, 1 silver, 2 bronze). This includes a record 6 consecutive gold medals from 1928-1956! However, the Indian men's hockey team hasn't been all that great in the recent past; they do qualify for the Olympics, but don't do very well there. They finished 12th in the 2012 London Olympics.

    What do you think of India's Chances in Field Hockey at Rio 2016?
