These medals are a result of a carefully planned and sustained “Mission Olympic Programme” by the Indian Army, which was conceived and implemented since year 2001.

On return of the team to India, Gen Manoj Pande, Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) and senior officers of the Army HQ congratulated and interacted with the sportspersons at an exclusive function organised at Delhi Cantt on 10 August 2022.
