NEW DELHI - Former Australian Olympian Terry Walsh was on Tuesday appointed chief coach of India's faltering field hockey team, replacing compatriot Michael Nobbs who was sacked in June. Walsh, a previous national coach of the Malaysian and Australian teams, is charged with turning India around, after the eight-time Olympic gold medallists finished last in the 2012 Games in London. "I will ensure no stone is left unturned in India's quest to return to the pinnacle of world hockey," Walsh said in a statement. Walsh, 59, was until recently the technical director of the United States field hockey association. Hockey India did not spell out the details of Walsh's appointment, but reports said he was expected to remain in charge till the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.–AFP
