Awards Current Affairs October 2nd Week 2017

1. National Award for Boxing Coach Sandhu & Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak.

Long-serving Indian boxing coach Gurbax Singh Sandhu has been honoured with the National Awards for senior citizens by President Ramnath Kovind.

Sandhu, who has the distinction of coaching both the men and women boxers, was bestowed the honour at a function here yesterday.

“I am throughly honoured to be considered worthy of Vayoshreshtha Samman—a scheme of National Awards for senior citizens. I am grateful to the President of India for this,” Sandhu told PTI.

Sandhu was India’s longest-serving men’s national coach, occupying the position for two decades before he was handed charge of the women campers earlier this year.
That tenure, however, ended up being a short one and he was replaced by Shiv Singh last month.

Sandhu was the chief coach when India won its maiden Olympic medal in boxing through Vijender Singh in 2008.
