Independent India's First Olympic Gold

Watch hockey legend Balbir Singh Sr lead independent India to a historic Olympic GOLD against its former rulers, on their own territory. At the 1948 Olympic finals, he scored 2 of the 4 goals against Great Britain in the 7th and 15th minutes. The unstoppable goal machine earned India three consecutive Olympic titles, and was the first to be awarded a Padma Shri in sports. He died yesterday at 96 in Mohali.

    Waiting for that day when we will become a sporting nation. When the govt will encourage sports and eliminate corrupt sport bodies. When parents will feel there is future in sports. And encourage their children to play. As much as studying hard for marks.
