National sports day quiz: On August 29, India commemorates National Sports Day, the anniversary of the birth of hockey legend Major Dhyan Chand. It was proclaimed India’s National Sports Day in 2012. In both Indian and international hockey, Major Dhyan Chand was legendary. He played a key role in India’s first hat-trick of Olympic gold medals, which they achieved with victory at the Summer Olympics in 1928, 1932, and 1936. After finishing his daily responsibilities, Dhyan used to practice hockey at night since he was so committed to his craft. This earned him the title Dhyan “Chand.” 

On a national scale, National Sports Day is widely observed. Every year, it is held in the Rashtrapati Bhavan, where the President of India honors the best athletes in the nation with the National Sports Awards. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the prizes from being physically given out.

Awards like the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award, Arjuna Award, and Dronacharya Award are given to current and previous athletes as part of the National Sports Award. On this day, the “Dhyan Chand Award” is presented in addition to all of these honors.
