Indian men's hockey team captain Manpreet Singh has vowed to fight all the odds to win a medal for India at the Olympics and will dedicate it to the country's Covid-19 warriors and the frontline workers.

"As we work hard towards the upcoming Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, we promise to fight all odds to win a medal for India," said Manpreet in a video released by Hockey India.

Manpreet is determined to pay tribute to the country's frontline workers by finishing on the podium in the Tokyo Games to be held from July 23 to August 8.

"And if we do get a medal, we would like to dedicate it to the true heroes of our country -- the doctors and frontline workers who have worked tirelessly to heal our country through these tough times and saved millions of lives. Thank you, Jai Hind," said Manpreet.

The skipper is delighted with the commitment and dedication being shown by each player in the ongoing selection trials at SAI Bengaluru centre.

"I am really proud to witness the kind of dedication each one of us have been showing during the trials. Representing India at the Olympics is a huge honour and a dream for every athlete. Everyone is pushing each other to give their best shot," said Manpreet.

India has won eight Olympic gold medals in the past, but their last top finish came way back in the 1980 Moscow Games.
