Field Hockey Canada > Triple Olympic gold medalist visits Men's National Team training

Earlier this week, the triple Olympic gold medalist in field hockey, Balbir Singh Sr., visited Men’s National Team training to wish Canada’s men good luck as they prepare for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.

Singh, who played for India’s National Field Hockey Team and won gold medals in 1948, 1952, and 1956, has recently had a book published about his field hockey career and life.

The 92 year-old has been living in Canada since the 1980s and is now a Canadian citizen.

With the Canadian men’s field hockey team headed to the 2016 Olympics in August, Singh visited training on Tuesday and shared some of his wisdom.
