Defence Minister Rajnath Singh to felicitate Olympians from Services at Army Sports Institute in Pune

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will felicitate the Olympians from the Services at the Army Sports Institute (ASI), Pune on Tuesday. All the Armed Forces personnel, who represented India in the recently-concluded Tokyo Olympics, including Gold medalist Javelin Thrower Subedar Neeraj Chopra are likely to be present on the occasion. Mr. Singh will also interact with the budding sportsmen of ASI and troops during his visit. He will visit the Headquarters of Southern Command.

Indian Army has always been the backbone of Indian sports – from Major Dhyan Chand to Subedar Neeraj Chopra who etched their names in golden letters in the history of Indian sports. The Indian Army’s Mission Olympics programme was launched in 2001 as a key responsibility area to raise the standard of sports with the intent to win medals in international events.
