We are on the cusp of making history: Oltmans

High Performance Director Roelant Oltmans feels India are on the cusp of making history but said to achieve that Sardar Singh and Co will have to give their 100 per cent against arch-rivals Pakistan in the Champions Trophy semifinal on Saturday.

Since the tournament’s inception in 1978, India has managed to win just one medal, bronze in 1982 edition in Amstelveen, the Netherlands. “Of course we are happy (with our performance) but when you are close to getting more, every sportsman will try to get more out of it. There is now 75 per cent chance to win a medal. In the history of Champions Trophy that happened once. So this team can write history and that’s what they are looking for,” Oltmans said on the eve of the high-voltage semifinal encounter to be played at the Kalinga Stadium.
