Dhyan Chand was born in Allahabad on August 29, 1905. Right from his childhood he had a fascination for sports. However, he joined the army at the age of sixteen. He continued playing hockey in the army. He and his team won the gold medal in hockey at the Amsterdam Olympics. He was the core of the Indian team which won three successive gold medals at the Olympics. Recognising the contribution of Dhyan Chand in hockey, the Indian government honoured him with the Padma Bhushan. His contribution in the field of hockey was also appreciated internationally. In the 1936 Berlin Olympics he was honoured with the Olive Crown and in the 1968 Mexico Olympics as 'Distinguished Guest'. He died in 1979 at the age of 74.
