Hockey player HP Sandhya conferred with ‘Soukya Sports Award’

National hockey player H P Sandhya, a proud Mysurean who is making waves in In­dian hockey at junior level was conferred with `Soukya Sports Award’ at the Rotary auditorium on Wednesday.

Rotary Mysore Midtown or­ganised a felicitation ceremo­ny in association with Soukya Travels to confer `Soukya Sports award-2016′ to Sand­hya H P for her consistent per­formance and achievements in the field of hockey. President of Mysuru Travel Agents’ As­sociation C A Jayakumar con­ferred the award to Sandhya.

Speaking after receiving the award and interacting at the event, Sandhya said “If I am in this position, it’s be¬cause of my mother who sacrificed and took a lot of pain to provide us good educa­tion and motivate us to ac­tively take part in the sport. My greatest inspiration is my mother. Though I have attend­ed various national camps, I feel that I need to improve my game and fitness further to represent the country. Being a player from Karnataka, I feel the players in the state were not given much prominence for the nationals and I have witnessed that players from Haryana, Punjab and from other northern states are giv­en more consideration since as they are found to be fit and well trained, compared to us.”

President, Rotary Mysore Midtown K Umesh, Secretary Narendra Babu, Department of Youth Empowerment and Sports Hostels Girls and oth­ers were present.
