๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ NATIONAL SPORTS DAY ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ

The National Sports Day in India is celebrated on 29 August, on the birth anniversary of hockey legend Major Dhyan Chand. This day marks the birthday of Major Dhyan Chand Singh, the hockey player who won gold medals in Olympics for India in the years 1928, 1932 and 1936. He scored 570 goals in his career, from 1926 to 1949 (according to his autobiography, ‘Goals’).

Major Dhyan Chand (29 August 1905 โ€“ 3 December 1979) was an Indian field hockey player, widely regarded as one of the greatest field hockey players in history. He was known for his extraordinary ball control and goal-scoring feats, in addition to earning three Olympic gold medals, in 1928, 1932 and 1936, during an era where India dominated field hockey.

His influence extended beyond these victories, as India won the field hockey event in seven out of eight Olympics from 1928 to 1964. After putting his stamp on international hockey arena and having served the country to reach its pinnacles of glory, he made us proud multiple times. He was a legendary figure in the Indian and world hockey.

The most noted memorials for him were the Major Dhyan Chand Award, the highest award for lifetime achievement in sports and games in India, and the National Sports Day celebrations on his birthday. Major Dhyan chand learnt the game of hockey from his coach Pankaj Gupta. There is no one who has reached his level in hockey.
