President Ram Nath Kovind confers National Sports Awards 2018

President Ram Nath Kovind on September 25, 2018 conferred the National Sports Awards 2018 at the Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi.

Cricket captain Virat Kohli and world champion weightlifter Mirabai Chanu were conferred with Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award 2018, India’s highest sporting honour.

The Ministry received a large number of nominations for these awards this year. The nominations were considered by the Selection Committees consisting of a former Olympian, Arjuna Awardees, Dronacharya Awardees, Dhyan Chand Awardees, Sport Journalists, Experts and sports administrators.

This year's award ceremony was postponed to September 25 from the usual August 29, which is observed as the National Sports Day, due to clash of dates with the Asian Games 2018 which was held in Jakarta, Indonesia.
