Honour by FTH to India’s Lalremsiami for Women’s Rising Star of the Year

India forward Lalremsiami has been named as the 2019 FIH Women’s Rising Star of the Year, the International Hockey Federation (FIH) said on Tuesday. The 19-year-old attacker took the prize ahead of Argentina’s Julieta Jankunas and Frederique Matla of the Netherlands, who finished second and third, respectively, the FIH said in a statement.

Lalremsiami first came into the wider hockey consciousness at the Women’s World Cup in 2018 when she was one of the stand-out players of the tournament.

Since making her debut in 2017 in a test series against Belarus, Lalremsiami has made a name for herself as a striker of phenomenal ability. Twice in her senior career she has been top goalscorer – in a test series against Korea in 2017 and against Spain in 2019.
