Options :

  2. 1980
  3. 1984
  4. 1976
Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 4


In 1976, the field was switched from grass to synthetic turf, which is much more expensive and cost prohibitive for Indian athletes. In the 9 Olympics since India has won 1 medal (gold in 1980). Before that India won a medal for field hockey in every Olympics (7 golds, 1 silver, 2 bronze) from 1928-1972. Thus it led to the declination of supremacy of India in Field Hockey in Olympics
