Best hockey player ever, famous as a “magician of hockey” and “Wizard of Hockey” for he exerted complete control on the ball. So great was the magic of Dhyan Chand Ji that the
Tokyo officials broke his hockey stick to search for a magnet inside, a lady from the audience asked Dhyan Chand Ji to play with her walking stick instead. He scored goals even with them. With his magic passing and unbelievable stick work he helped
India to win Gold Medal in 1928, 1932 Olympics. In 1936 Berlin Olympics he captained Indian side and scored six out eight goals scored against Germans.
India won the final on 15th of august 1936 beating
Germany by 8-1, seventy years ago.
A greatest sportsman ever, and undisputed Kind of Hockey. Dyan Chand Ji was to hockey what Don Bradman was to cricket. Even once Sir Don Bradman said after watching Dyan chand Ji hockey, that he scored goals like we scored run in cricket.
There cannot be two opinions about the fact that Major Dyan Chand was one of the craftiest of hockey players that
India has so far produced.
Such days have faded away …. yet the memory of Dyan Chand Ji the greatest hockey player produced by
India-will live on.
