extraordinary qualities like that of leadership, discipline and a good sense of

also given to the distinguished coaches of any particular sport. Selection of
these coaches is based on their performance to successfully train the
sportsperson or the teams, and their help in achieving the outstanding results
in the international arena. Sports awards should no doubt be given to the
deserving sportsman, but it should not just remain till the boundaries of the
field. It is true that the players are the true heroes of the game, but most of
