In India August 29th every year is celebrated as National Sports day and is the birthday of Major Dhyan Chand Singh who is the captain of Hockey team which won gold in Olympics.

For his contribution towards the sport and bringing home great laurels to the country, his birthday is celebrated as National Sports Day as a mark of respect and recognition for his sporting genius.

As a part of the celebrations, many sport activities and competitions are conducted in many parts of the country.  National awards for various sports, best coach and lifetime achievement awards are distributed for different categories on the National sports day.

Not only our National game-Hockey, but other games are given wide importance, which provides a good platform to sports persons of diverse disciplines.  Best things to do on this National Sports Day:

= Encourage children to involve  more in sports
