Only three teams entered the 1932 Olympic hockey tournament. Nobody doubted India would win the gold, as their opponents, the host nation and Japan, were both debutants in Olympic hockey. Although the South Asians conceded their first goals in Olympic play, they thrashed Japan 11-1 and the U.S. 24-1. The latter score is still a record in international hockey. The brothers Roop Singh and Dhyan Chand scored 10 and 8 goals, respectively. Despite a goal difference of minus 30, the United States won the bronze, which is still the men’s team only Olympic medal.
