A baby-faced batsman entered the world of cricket at the age of sixteen and soon changed the face of the game with his exploits with the bat. It was India’s Sachin Tendulkar. When the world almost walked out India for ever winning a yellow metal in an individual event at Olympics, Abhinav Bindra hit the gold at point blank! Post-independence, when the world buzzed at how India crumbled to stand on its own feet, a ‘Flying Sikh’ showed the world that India could not just stand upright but run swiftly – it was the country’s first sports superstar athlete Milkha Singh. Leander Paes, India’s tennis sensation, is the best paradigm for the phrase ‘Age is no limit’. At 41, this old guard became the oldest man to win a Grand slam! In men-dominated sports, one woman had the courage to fight it out. It was boxing legend, five times world champion and Olympic bronze medallist MC Mary Kom. The national game of the country, Hockey may have its highs, but none can be more gratifying than the final match against Netherlands at the 1952 Olympics when Balbir Singh Sr scored a record five goals! He still holds the record for most number of goals scored by an individual in an Olympics’ men hockey final. Do you still need more? If yes, then check this segment and find out about Indian sporting legends, their life and their works.
