The Indian women’s hockey team’s ambition of winning their first Olympic medal was dashed when they fell 3-4 to Great Britain in a hard-fought bronze play-off on Friday, but the tenacious squad still managed to secure its best-ever result at the Games.

By reaching the semifinals of the Games for the first time, the team had already made history and exceeded all expectations. The disappointment came only one day after the Indian men’s team broke a 41-year medal drought by winning bronze in a 5-4 victory over Germany.
