Bengaluru, Apr 9 : As part of their preparations for the 2020 Olympic Qualifiers, Hockey India has invited former Australian striker Kieran Govers to work with the Indian Men's Hockey Team strikers during the on-going national camp which commenced on April 8 at the Sports Authority of India, here.

Govers who was part of the Australian team that won the Men's World Cup in 2010 and 2014 arrived in Bengaluru on Monday for a 8-day special camp for strikers. "I am truly excited to return to India. I have some really fond memories of playing in this hockey-crazy country," expressed Govers.

"I have been following the Indian team's progress very closely and I believe they have great potential. In the next few days I will be working with the forwards to see how we can improve their efficiency inside the circle and when the opponents' marking is tight how can we convert. The whole idea is to help improve the conversion rate," said the former 31-year-old striker. (UNI)
