The Indian Hockey Team
Gold, 1936, Berlin
This is the team that legends are made of. Captained by Dhyan Chand, India won all its league matches, beating Japan, Hungary and the USA, and thrashing France 10-0 in the semifinal. The final against Germany was the only match in which it conceded a goal (8-1). In the entire tournament, the team scored a total of 38 goals. Dhyan Chand, who played three Olympics and chose to retire after the Berlin Games, lost a tooth in the final after colliding with German goalie Tito Warnholtz.
